About

Bio

I am a fellowship trained vitreo-retinal surgeon. My clinical interests include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, uveitis and retinopathy of prematurity. My research interests include long-term outcomes following vitrectomy and prevention of wet AMD with injections.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
