Dr. Rahaman is a Clinical Professor in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. He has served as the Fellowship Program Director and the Director of the Gynecologic Oncology Chemotherapy Service at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. He has also previously served as the Division Director of Gynecologic Oncology at the Mount Sinai and Elmhurst Hospitals. He is one of a very few surgeons credentialed to teach and perform da Vinci Robotic surgery for Gynecologic cancers and near-Infrared fluorescence sentinel lymph node mapping. He established the Training Program in Robotic Surgery for Gynecologic Cancers and regained full accreditation for the Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program from ABOG during his tenure as Fellowship Director. In 2017 he was appointed as a Governor of The American College of Surgeons and currently serves on the Surgical Training Workgroup and in the Education Pillar.
Dr. Rahaman received his medical training at The University of the West Indies and did his first Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Mount Hope Women's Hospital, in a Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists Program. He also completed the full Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. In addition to the Fellowship training in Gynecologic Oncology at Mount Sinai, he also completed a two year Fellowship in Cardiac and Vascular surgery with Dr. Denton Cooley at the Texas Heart Institute. After serving as Chairman of The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the Williamson ARH Hospital in Kentucky, he was recruited to return to the Faculty at Mount Sinai in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology.
Dr. Rahaman's academic responsibility focuses on the comprehensive training of subspecialty fellows in Gynecologic Oncology in addition to teaching resident physicians and medical students. He is widely recognized for his special expertise in complicated and challenging pelvic surgery especially laparoscopic, minimally invasive surgery and daVinci Robotic surgery. He is the Principal and co-investigator on several National & International Clinical trials for gynecologic cancers including GOG chemotherapy trials and HPV vaccination trials. Dr. Rahaman is also engaged in basic science and translational research to identify potential predictors of malignant transformation to ovarian cancers as well as investigating novel targets and pathways for emerging cancer therapeutic agents. He has authored numerous publications in International journals and written several book chapters in Gynecologic Oncology and has been the recipient of many teaching and peer recognition awards. His clinical practice encompasses the full spectrum of care for gynecologic cancers including Radical Surgery, Robotics, Argon Beam Laser, chemotherapy and biologic therapy. He is also a certified colposcopist for Cervical Dysplasia clinical trials and provides complete treatment for pre-invasive lower genital tract disease including laser therapy.
