Dr. Tewari shares a global view of eye care. An accomplished scientific author and inventor, Dr. Tewari crosses the globe presenting his work on groundbreaking retinal surgery techniques. Here is an update on his most recent work:
What's New in the Operating Room?
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.
