Orbital Disease & Tumors

Orbital Disease & Tumors 

When it comes to orbital tumors and other orbital diseases, experience matters. The delicate structures around the eye are incredibly complicated and prone to injury with the slightest misstep. An improper surgery can lead to inadequate treatment, loss of function in the eye or eye socket, or even death.

 

Why should I seek out an orbital specialist?

Whether you have been diagnosed with a tumor, inflammation, or other growth in the orbit, we have experience in dealing with these difficult conditions. For the past 30 years, we have written groundbreaking articles and driven innovation in orbital disease across the country. We have also contributed to elegant minimally-invasive techniques (for example, endoscopic) to treat these conditions without needing large scars or openings. This has led to shorter surgeries, minimal or no hospital stay, and faster recovery, meaning you can get back to your life as soon as possible.

 

How is surgery performed?

Surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and may take 1 – 3 hours. Incisions, if necessary, are placed in the hidden folds of the eyelids such that they are invisible to the naked eye. Often, we are able to use the endoscope such that no incisions on the skin are necessary. We may work in conjunction with an interventional radiologist, particularly in the case of vascular tumors, or tumors made of blood vessels.

As experts and thought leaders in the fields of orbital tumors, vascular tumors, and orbital inflammatory disease, we have decades of experience and are on the cutting edge of medical research. When it comes to the orbit, don’t settle – you need the surgeons who are the leaders in the field. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your situation.
