Biography

Dr. Kimberly Yee is the first board certified female Colorectal surgeon to practice in Westchester County, and she has pioneered several new technologies in the management of colorectal disease at White Plains Hospital.

She then completed a second Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
