I wastold I had the beginnings of Overian cancer and I should see an Oncologist to have a hysterectomy.
i need to come in ASAP to see an Oncologist Gynocologist.
i wold like to see Nadeen R. Abu-Rustum. If this is his specialty.

Thank you for reaching out. If you would like to make an appointment with a Memorial Sloan-Kettering physician, please call our Physician Referral Service at 800-525-2225.

Dr. Abu-Rustum performed a total hysterectomy on me in June utilizing the laparoscopic technique and sentinel lymph node mapping. I felt so confident in his expertise and he did a fabulous job. I was totally impressed with the care I received. I myself am a nurse and am very concerned about receiving the best care possible. I totally recommend him. He even reassured me and I will never forget his words " this is curable" . I am scheduled for a follow up visit with him in January after my primary treatment regime is completed.

My brother has refered me to Dr. Rustum- I currently have very large growths in my uterus which need to be removed while preserving fertililty.

Dr. Rustum and his team are the best. I am so thankful I found him when I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. He saved my life.
