Dr Disa is a plastic surgeon at Memorial Sloan Kettering. A breast cancer diagnosis can be devastating, but Dr Disa does spectacular reconstruction. He is caring and supportive, understanding that making decisions can be a trying experience. His staff are wonderful too.

Dr. Disa was my surgeon when I had oral cancer in 2015. He provide a "flap" or graft inside my cheek using veins and skin from my wrist/arm as well as additional use of a graft from my upper thigh. He was very caring. My wrist and arm have practically no dis-figuration and almost all feeling is restored with very little remaining discomfort almost 2 1/2 years later. The graft/flap in my cheek help up even when later radiation was deemed necessary by my oral surgeon. Dr. Disa was exceptional

It has been my good fortune to have Dr. Disa as my dermatologic plastic surgeon. Following the removal of skin on my nose for melanoma, his skill in closing the area and guidance in these first 6 months has been consistently supportive and most positive. When I had concerns, he and his supportive staff were responsive in a most timely manner. As a result, I have total confidence and calmness about my treatment, progress of the healing and ultimate appearance. Dr. Disa is great!

Dr. Disa performed reconstructive surgery after a prophylactic mastectomy. My surgery was before Angelina Jolie gave this surgery a voice. My regret was choosing Dr. Disa as my surgeon. The results were and are awful. He cared little about my requests and concerns to improve the cosmetic results of his surgery. Liposuction was offered on the sides of my breasts after one surgery. He said I didn't book enough operating room time. Was this an assembly line? I remain very unhappy

He was very knowledgable and skilled regarding my left unilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. He reconstruct my right breast to match the reconstruction of the left, after the expansion and replacement of the prosthetic. I was allowed to choice my prosthetic. All MDs that has seen my breasts have only great compliments, and wanted to know who was my plastic surgeon. I was told this is the best reconstruction they have ever seen. He is compassionate and a professional person.
