Innovations in Thyroid Eye Disease and Orbital Surgery Research

Our physicians are conducting leading-edge research to advance care for patients with thyroid eye disease and orbital tumors. As a result, they have pioneered several new, minimally invasive surgical approaches.

 

Thyroid Eye Disease Surgery

Our team has developed a new surgical technique to perform orbital decompression surgery, while minimizing post-operative problems, such as double vision. During the procedure, some of the bones in the eye socket (orbital walls) are removed to create more space for the enlarged muscles and fat that may be compromising vision.


Orbital Tumor Surgery

Our team has also developed new methods to access and repair the eye socket after the endoscopic removal of orbital tumors.

Quality of Life after Orbital Surgery

Our team is examining ways to optimize patient quality of life after endoscopic orbital surgeries.
