Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gutin "I have had a lifelong interest in neuro-oncology, and I am a specialist in the surgery of benign and malignant tumors of the brain and spinal cord. My research interests are radiation biology, gene therapy, and the use of agents to block the formation of blood vessels within tumors to stop their growth. I work very closely with a team of neurologists and radiation oncologists here at Memorial Sloan-Kettering to bring the most advanced standard and experimental treatments to our patients."

Dr Gutin is truly the best of the best! He has done 2 crainiotomies for me. Each time I am calmed and reassured by his personable nature and confidence. He is approachable and kind, with a wicked sense of humor! Couldn't ask for better! He shows me my scans every time and thoroughly explains what needs to be done and why. His assistant, Petal, is also outstanding and very calming with her positive approach. They treat the whole patient.

This man is by far one of the finest surgeons I have had the pleasure to work with.

The best of the best! I am alive today because of Dr Gutin.
Doctor Gutin is personable and confident. We opted for an approach that had a good chance of preserving my hearing. But my surgery left me deaf in one ear, facial nerve paralysis on one side, and unable to blink my eye. He visited the morning after surgery and informed me he was leaving the country for a few days. I had severe headaches for the next 4 days. My hospital stay was much longer than expected because of the pain. He forgot my 1 wk followup. Not recommended.
