A PERSONAL JOURNEY

At age nine, Dr. Gerasimos Bastas had a fibroblastic osteosarcoma in his right proximal tibia. He underwent chemotherapy, numerous operations and lengthy hospitalizations, over the years, culminating in an elective transfemoral amputation at age eighteen. He pursued his undergraduate studies at Brown University, matriculated at the dual MD/PhD degree program at Boston University School of Medicine, and completed his residency training in PM&R at the University of Pennsylvania, always finding himself reflexively appreciating the reasoning, scope and need for long-term medically-directed rehabilitation to ensure enablement and well-being. His desire to be of service, as a physician, has always been a confluence of avid intellectual interest and the belief, borne of experienced certainty, that restoring and safeguarding someone’s health and function are among the most meaningful of contributions. Having lived the gamut of experiences in dealing with limb loss and the current state of prosthetic technologies, as both patient and medical provider, Dr. Bastas feels privileged and humbled to recognize his wants and needs in the very real wants and needs of others. As a practitioner, he wants to tend to those needs, and as a researcher, he wishes to explore possibilities where solutions and knowledge are lacking.
