Currently, Dr Gastman is a double boarded Plastic Surgeon and Otolaryngologist with specific interests in the comprehensive care of soft tissue malignancies, such as melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers, sarcomas and head and neck cancer. His additional fellowships in head and neck surgery, microsurgery and cancer research allows him to deal with these types of patients from an extirpative and reconstructive standpoint, as well as using his grasp of current non-traditional therapies and research to better council patients through these challenging pathologies. Currently Dr. Gastman has helped to institute a successful melanoma and soft tissue cancer clinic housed at the Taussig Cancer Center. At this clinic patients can be seen by not only him for extirpative and reconstructive consults, but also by medical and radiation oncologists all in the same setting. By creating such programs for patients Dr. Gastman strives to provide state of the art medicine all in the most expeditious and comprehensive fashion.
