About Me

Tamir Ben-Menachem, MD, MS, serves as Chairman of Summit Medical Group’s Gastroenterology Department. In addition to his position at Summit Medical Group, Dr. Ben-Menachem is Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick. Dr. Ben-Menachem was previously Director of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Chief of the Therapeutic Endoscopy Program. He has privileges at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey. Dr. Ben-Menachem’s expertise includes diseases of the pancreas and bile ducts as well as precancerous and cancerous conditions of the digestive tract. He is one of few physicians in New Jersey with extensive experience in endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic removal of early digestive tract cancers, and endoscopic treatment of Barrett’s esophagus. Dr. Ben-Menachem is the coauthor of articles and book chapters concerning gastrointestinal endoscopy. His articles are published in prestigious, peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Annals of Internal Medicine, Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, American Journal of Gastroenterology, and Critical Care Medicine. A gifted speaker, Dr. Ben-Menachem has delivered more than 50 local, regional, and national invited presentations in his field. He is a member of the American College of Physicians, American College of Gastroenterology, American Endosonography Club, American Gastroenterological Association, and American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. He is a committee member of national and regional professional organizations, including the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Standards of Practice Committee.

Dr. Ben-Menachem is the recipient of more than 24 honors and awards, including the Henry Ford Health System Patient Satisfaction Award and Patient Choice Award. He has been listed multiple times in New Jersey Monthly's "Top Doctors," Millburn-Short Hills "Super Doctors," New York Magazine's "Top Doctors, "Castle Connolly's "Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area," Castle Connolly's "Best Doctors in America," and Castle Connolly's "America's Top Doctors." Dr. Ben-Menachem's Castle Connolly listings have been reprinted in Inside Jersey and US News and World Report. The American Cancer Society has honored him at its 35th Annual Diamond Ball for his compassionate and expert surgical care.

“Advances in technology allow physicians to treat previously untreatable conditions,” notes Dr. Ben-Menachem. “In some cases, endoscopic procedures allow us to cure many benign and malignant diseases of the digestive tract. I’m fortunate to be a part of this exciting revolution in health care.”

When he is not caring for his patients, Dr. Ben-Menachem enjoys sailing and gardening.
