replacing corroded drain pipe

There was a leak in the galvanized pipe below our basement utility sink. I tried to replace it, but found that the drain pipe coming from the sink (forty-year old concrete) was completely corroded and the threads were worn away completely. I've tried to rig up a fix with epoxy, but I'm not having much luck--the epoxy is slow to dry, and it seems like a cheesy fix to begin with. Is there anything I can do short of replacing the sink?

Thanks much.

Get out the sledge hammer, time to replace the concrete tub, there out of date, install a new plastic or fiberglass tub.

I was afraid of that. Thanks for the help.
