What's New in the Operating Room?

TissueBlue™

Proven to be reliable and safe, TissueBlue™ is the only FDA-approved selective stain for removal of the Internal Limiting Membrane (ILM). In this high-resolution video below, watch Dr. Tewari demonstrate use of this stain during the delicate process of vitreoretinal surgery.

iOCT Technology

Our new intraoperative OCT (iOCT) technology enables us to utilize "real-time" imaging during vitreo-retinal surgery. This state-of-the-art system allows us to visualize the retinal surface while performing surgery. This technology is available in only a handful of institutions in the world and we are fortunate to be able to use this routinely on all of our surgical cases. 

In addition to iOCT, we use a 3D Digital-Assisted Vitrectomy HD System (Ngenuity), which creates an overall increase in magnification and better depth of field during surgery compared to traditional microscopes.

Global Retina Health Initiative

Michigan Retina Center founded the Global Retina Health Initiative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Global Retina Health Initiative aims to advance retinal health worldwide and accomplishes this goal by:

  • Conducting educational seminars

  • Providing diagnostic equipment to underserved areas

  • Supporting physicians who do not have adequate access to the tools and funding for research of retinal diseases

Your support makes a difference in improving retina health worldwide.
