However, his current appointments at NYP/Columbia mark a return to the institution where he did his general surgical training and spent the early part of his career beginning in 1992.

He also served as the Co-Principal Investigator of the U.S. Department of Health, Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s grant to APSA “Partnership for Development and Dissemination of Outcomes Measures for Injured Children.”

Currently, Dr. Stylianos is a member of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma and is a consultant for the Pediatric Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the new Journal of Pediatric Surgery Case Reports, Associate Editor of the Journal of Pediatric Surgery and served on the Executive Board and was a founding member of the Pediatric Trauma Society.
