CEC Welcomes Our New Retinal Surgeons
CEC is pleased to announce a major change in the retina service at Capital Eye Consultants. Dr. Randall Wong will be concluding his time at Capital Eye Consultants as of January 1, 2016. We wish Randy good luck in his future endeavors and thank him for his many years of service to our retina patients at Capital Eye Consultants.
We are proud to announce that Dr. Sam E. Mansour and Dr. Marena Patronas will be providing a seamless transition of retinal care for your patients at Capital Eye Consultants. Please take a moment to review their biographies on the Capital Eye Consultants website.
You will find that both doctors have extensive experience in both medical and surgical retina. Dr. Mansour is the Medical Director of Virginia Retina Center whose offices are west of Fairfax County. Some of you may remember Sam from his earlier work with The National Retina Institute in Tyson’s Corner. Marena has some local roots in that she received her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University, as well as her Doctor of Medicine degree. She did her ophthalmology residency at St. Vincent Catholic Medical Center in Manhattan.
Interestingly, just like John C. Baldinger, she completed her fellowship in Vitreoretinal surgery at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School in Boston. Both doctors will be seeing patients at Capital Eye Consultants. With this new staffing and your continued support, we hope to grow the retina portion of our practice through expert retinal care provided on a patient oriented basis that includes good communication with referring doctors and stresses the continuity of care provided in our two disciplines.
CEC now performing Istent glaucoma procedure at time of Cataract Surgery
Dr. Baldinger is now performing Istent surgery at the same time as cataract surgery. The Istent is the smallest FDA approved device to ever be placed in the human body. Measuring just a millimeter in length, the Istent is placed directly in the filtering part of the eye at the time of cataract surgery. The placement only takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete and is painless.
