Schedule Appointment

As an orbital and periocular plastic surgeon, I treat conditions that affect structures surrounding the eyes. From the delicate treatment of infants with conditions like blepharophimosis syndrome, which impacts how eyelids develop, to addressing complex issues in adults, such as thyroid eye disease and droopy eyelids, I approach each case with utmost dedication and precision.

My fascination with oculofacial and orbital surgery began in medical school, where the complexity of the eyelid and the eye socket sparked a profound interest. After completing my residency in ophthalmology, I began a prestigious fellowship from the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Choosing this path was a natural fit because I am deeply passionate about caring for my patients, and the finesse and artistry required in oculoplastic surgery spoke to my heart.

My journey has been filled with perseverance, determination, and an unwavering dedication to the field. From the earliest stages of my career, I recognized that it is a truly rewarding experience to help patients regain their vision and confidence, with many of them marveling at the newfound clarity, both in sight and appearance.

I am excited to serve my community, utilizing my expertise to provide the best care possible and to continue improving the lives of my patients.
