This is a unique cornea and anterior segment fellowship combining complicated anterior segment procedures and refractive surgery. Refractive surgeries include WaveLight® FS200 procedures, Intacs™, phakic intraocular lenses, as well as LASIK and PRK. Our corneal transplants are among the most advanced in the country including the most recent techniques of endothelial keratoplasty with Descemet’s stripping, anterior lamellar keratoplasty, keratoprosthesis, WaveLight® FS200 penetrating keratoplasty, and a variety of research studies related to corneal transplantation. Complicated anterior segment surgeries include artificial iris implantation, intraocular lens exchange utilizing pars plana vitrectomy, and scleral- and iris-fixated posterior chamber lenses. Glaucoma surgeries include use of setons and non-penetrating techniques.
Fellows learn key practice management skills including marketing, insurance, billing, accounting, and patient flow logistics that are essential for those considering either private practice or clinic management. Weekly clinical reviews to discuss difficult and unusual cases, research study results, and new developments provide exposure to a wide range of topics and surgical challenges. Monthly working-lunch sessions give fellows an opportunity to make presentations to staff and glean pearls from the medical director and invited speakers. Upon completion of the program, it is expected that the fellow will be a well-rounded, confident and resourceful ophthalmologist who is able to manage the most challenging anterior segment cases.
Regarding AUPO FCC: Originally this fellowship had only one preceptor (Francis W. Price, Jr., M.D.), so no attempt has been made to become AUPO certified. Nevertheless, this remains a premier fellowship that exposes fellows to leading edge surgical procedures that are not available in most fellowships. We believe that no other program offers the combination of skills and expertise that can be gained in this fellowship.
