About Me

As an oculoplastic surgeon, I am an ophthalmologist trained specifically in the management of eyelid, eye socket and tear duct disease. This includes droopy eyelids, lumps and bumps around the eyelids, skin cancers, and orbital tumors, among other conditions. Oculoplastic surgeons bring a unique perspective to eyelid and orbital surgery, as we are trained first as eye experts before specializing in the area around the eyes. Although oculoplastics is a surgical field, I prioritize the desires and symptoms of each of my patients, and strongly consider the risk to benefit ratio of a potential surgery. I am not in a rush to operate without a compelling reason. I moved to Durham from the northeast and have thoroughly enjoyed living here. I enjoy playing tennis, eating at local restaurants, and exploring the mountains of western Carolina with my family.
