These conditions include lung nodules, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pleural effusion, asthma, airway obstruction and interstitial lung disease.

Gesthalter has a special interest in using minimally invasive procedures to treat cancers affecting the lungs.

Gesthalter's research investigates how to reduce lung cancer risk through computational biological methods and lung cancer screening.

Gesthalter earned his medical degree at Tel Aviv University and completed a residency in internal medicine at Yale University. At Boston University School of Medicine, he completed a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine and a research fellowship in computational biomedicine. He then completed a fellowship in interventional pulmonary medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital.
