Neurosurgeon Dr. John Gastaldo: At home in the OR and in the sky. "The challenge of surgery is rewarding beyond description. In the process of being there for my patients I have learned an enormous amount."-Dr. John Gastaldo, MD, FACS
John Gastaldo relishes the absolute nature of science. His passion for precision has guided his choices throughout his life. It began with his early education at a school for the gifted in New York City where he excelled in chemistry and technology. In the seventh grade he built a computer as his entry in the New York City Science Fair and walked away with first prize. He is able to revisit the competitive spirit of those school days when he serves as a judge for the Lancaster Newspapers Science & Engineering Fair each year.
In his youth, as he moved toward college and a profession, it was a television show that attracted him to medicine. The show was Ben Casey, a hospital drama from the sixties about a pioneering neurosurgeon who personified the intensity that John Gastaldo felt.
Rosann Leed of Stevens is among the thousands of patients that Dr. Gastaldo has treated who appreciates his professional skill and sensitivity. in May, 2009, she underwent surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) to relieve severe pain in her thumb that kept her awake at night. CTS occurs when the median nerve is compressed at the wrist. It leads to numbness and muscle weakness in the hand. The procedure was done at The NeuroSpine Center, the practice's recently opened outpatient surgery center. Dr. Gastaldo is the Center's Medical Director.
This was Rosann's second surgery with Dr. Gastaldo. Twenty years ago she underwent back surgery. That experience gave her the confidence and trust to choose him for the delicate nerve surgery. "He really explains everything down to the finest detail," she said, "so I knew exactly what was going to happen and what to expect. I was happy to put myself in his hands again."
In addition to caring for patients and raising a family, Dr. Gastaldo uses his free hours in a way that reflects his love of precision and detail. When time allows and the weather cooperates, he heads for Lancaster Airport to fulfill another cherished role - that of civilian pilot. He learned to fly and became an instrument-rated pilot when he was a resident physician at Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia, inspired by his chief of neurosurgery, who was also a pilot. In the intervening years he had let his certifications lapse.
Dr. Gastaldo's precision with the exacting details of neurosurgery is well matched by his skill in the cockpit and his rigorous efforts toward improving liability insurance conditions in Central Pennsylvania.
What comes across consistently in all his endeavors is the enduring satisfaction that he finds in the choices he has made and the passions he has embraced full throttle.
