Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Our ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery service focuses on the structures surrounding the eye, including the eyelids, orbit, lacrimal system, forehead and mid-face areas. We provide a complete range of oculoplastic procedures at our center. The most common reason for performing these surgeries is to improve vision, eye function and comfort or to reconstruct an abnormality or defect of the eyelids. Our fellowship-trained ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon completed 2 years of additional training in an ASOPRS approved fellowship, is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is an approved ASOPRS member.

Quality Assurance Programs

The center is especially renowned for its quality assurance programs. Our comprehensive system of infection control has resulted in one of the lowest infection and endophthalmitis rates in the world after cataract surgery. Numerous manuscripts and articles have been published and courses taught at various international meetings regarding our system.

The reason for the center’s amazing success is largely due to the high quality individuals on our team. We have one of the finest staff of dedicated registered nurses that can be found anywhere who take great pride in conscientious, quality care. Patients often comment that after coming through a surgical procedure at the center that they have never had such a positive and pleasant surgical experience. As a partner with Amsurg (Nashville, TN), the facility has access to resources that allow us to meet and surpass all governmental regulatory requirements as well.
