Reconstructive Surgery: What makes Dr. Gleysteen different?
What does that mean for you, the patient?
This means that Dr. Gleysteen is a rare double-threat: not only does he address the illness itself, he’s trained to reconstruct the area to appear as it did before.
While other head and neck surgeons can operate to remove the tumor, they then refer patients to a general plastic surgeon for reconstructive surgery. Dr. Gleysteen is one of the few whose focus is solely on the head and neck, making your road to wellness that much easier.
