Biography

    Dr. Gaisa has a strong interest in HIV disease; he’s providing primary and specialized HIV services at the Jack Martin Fund Clinic and Faculty Practice with emphasis on multi-drug resistant HIV. He also established a diagnostic and therapeutic program, unique to the Mount Sinai Medical Center and far beyond, that is aimed at prevention and early detection of anal cancer. There is an increasing body of literature clearly demonstrating the heightened vulnerability of the HIV-infected population to developing invasive squamous cell cancers of the anal canal. With creation and implementation of this program that involves a highly specialized procedure, termed high-resolution anoscopy (HRA), Mount Sinai is meeting a newly issued mandate by the New York State Department of Health’s AIDS Institute, and, more importantly, improving care and primary prevention for a large number of patients at particular risk.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
