Meet our Orbital Experts
Our eyes are one of the most vulnerable and important parts of the body, which is why it’s important to choose an orbital surgeon who is highly-qualified and mindful of a patient’s needs and desires. Our eyelid surgeons come from a variety of backgrounds, but they are all committed to the same goal: providing their patients with the best and most comprehensive treatment options available.
At La Peer, our surgeons have written textbooks, lectured around the world, and have been appeared on television programs such as The Oprah Winfrey Show, Discovery Health, The Doctors, CNN, ABC News, and more. Our experts have also been featured in some of the country’s largest newspapers, including The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.
The orbital area is the section of the face that includes the eye, socket, bone, muscle, and surrounding tissues. Oftentimes, treatment in this area requires surgeons from multiple departments. At La Peer, our team of doctors will work together to provide patients with the best care possible. Our ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor) can help treat trauma to the sinus cavity near the eyes, while an oculoplastic surgeon specializes in the eyes directly. This comprehensive and all-inclusive treatment method is why La Peer is one of the most highly-regarded outpatient facilities in the country.

Procedures Performed by our Orbital Experts
La Peer’s orbital experts perform a variety of procedures around the eyes. And because each patient is unique, our surgeons personally tailor each procedure to the individual’s specific needs. Procedures performed at La Peer Health Systems include the following:
- Orbital decompression: This procedure deals with bulging eyes, typically a symptom of Grave’s disease. This procedure makes room for the swollen tissue around the eyes, eliminating the “bulgy eye” look.
- Eyelid reconstruction: During this procedure, our experts use skin grafts to make the eyelid look more natural and appealing.
- Socket reconstruction: This procedure provides rehabilitation to the variety of tissues, muscles, and bone that surround the eye.
- Orbital tumors removal: Our orbital surgeons are experienced in removing tumors on or around the eye.
- Eyelid retraction: Eyelid retraction involves placing the eyelids in their natural position, giving patients a natural look.
- Eyelid cancer removal: Our eyelid surgeons will diagnosis and treat cancer found on the eyelid of a patient.
