Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery nyc


Avatar n tn Most of the big name cataract specialists seem scattered across the country with none in NYC, except for perhaps Dodick, known for his phacolysis laser. She doesn't want to travel far for surgery so who should she see in this big city? One or more names would be great, thanks!
Avatar m tn I'm looking in to getting laser vision correction surgery. Any recommendations of where to get it done? FYI, I'm in NYC.
430820 tn?1218251466 I wasnt worried about the surgery itself, but the recovery time. And how i would feel. I threw up a few times after i woke up, went home and slept it off. I am in alot of pain from the srugery, but i am msotly hurt from what i found out. I will be 18 next month and i just found out that i not only had endometriosis on my uterus and right ovary, but a fibroid on my uterus and pollyps in my uterus. The pain and constant bleeding started december 2007.
Avatar n tn His team has also had a lot of success with endoscopic and laser surgery. You can send all of your stuff to him for evaluation before having to make the trip. I've seen some spectacular cases he's operated on. One guy had no discs in his neck, just one long rod! You only have one neck and that connects to your back which makes up your whole spine..... make the right decision when it comes to who you let cut it open. Another great site is GPN, Global Patient Network.
Avatar n tn I had surgery done on my broken pinky finger on January 1, 2008, which I broke while playing football, and I was in the cast for 6 weeks after that. After the cast came out, the doctor told me to go to therapy for 6 weeks/ 2 times a week to get rid of the stiffness in the finger. Now it is May 5th, 2008 and I have 2 more weeks of therapy left but still the finger is a little stiff. I can bend it but not fully and in terms of going back up it doesn't move at all.
233488 tn?1310696703 rounding the cornea at time of surgery with brand new (2013) femtosecond laser; post operatively using lasik surgery to remove residual astigmatism. 9. In cases where one eye has a cataract that is symptomatic and causing problems with important functions such as driving, reading, recognizing faces, glare avoidance, etc. but the other eye has no cataract or a cataract that is small and not troublesome in people with large refractive errors special attention needs to be made to choice of IOL.
Avatar m tn A female friend, 75 years old, recently had cataract surgery. The surgery on her right eye went wonderfully. She returned one week later to get the same surgery on her left eye. Something went terribly wrong but can it possibly be connected to the surgery? The night of the surgery she experienced sever eye pain and watering. Two days later, blood started pouring from her nose and mouth. She went to the emergency room where they witnessed this.
Avatar m tn Hello, I had Lasik surgery done in Ecuador 8 days ago, i live in NYC and just got back to NY 6 days ago, i have been reading online that it is mandatory to have a follow-up with your surgeon, but since my surgeon is in Ecuador, it is not gonna happen. I want to know if going to a Ophthalmologist and explaining the situation would be similar? or do i have to find a surgeon here? Also...
Avatar n tn There are many teaching hospitals in NYC with plastic surgery residency programs. I suggest you have a consultation in their plastic surgery clinics.
Avatar f tn would have, and i cannot tolerate this. i know you can get them removed surgically and also removed with laser therapy, but i cannot see how this can be done without leaving pitting, etc. i cannot tolerate THAT, either. i read that these dermatofibromas often can be removed with *high-potency topical steroids* and this is the way i want to go.
Avatar n tn If I get some retina emergency and need to have laser or frozen surgery, can I go to the hospital myself or must be accompanied by someone else? Thank you very much.
Avatar n tn Hi, This seems to be cherry angiomas, from the description that you give, though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions. Cherry angiomas are benign , fairly common skin growths that vary in size. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but usually develop on the trunk. They are most common after age 40. The cause is unknown. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn I suggest to them about having surgery either laser or the sonar that breaks them up but they say no. I have also tried various home remedies and everything but nothing seems to work and lately the pain is back and its interfering with my job. Is there anything to do or any doctor in the NYC region that can actually do something?
Avatar n tn I seem to be losing more vision with each passing week and have a tentative surgery date of Dec 11, 2007. Any advice will be helpful. Also NYC Dr info if I need more cunsultations.
Avatar n tn Carmen Pulifito the new Dean of USC medical school is co inventor of the oculat coherence tomography OCT, ophthalmologists also invented medical applications of argon laser, Yag laser, selective laser trabedculoplasty, Eximer laser, diathermy, all types of RD surgical hardware, Very few medical specialies have invented more instruments, tehcniques, etc then my fellow ophthalmologists.
Avatar n tn His right eye was fixed. But the surgery on his left eye (laser) only made the eye worse. He was 6 years old then. Now he's 27 years old, living in Boston where he's a associate symphony conductor. He just got his doctorate in music. The this is he was visiting recently and his eye is worse. He doesn't use it anymore and it 'droops'. He's 6' tall and very handsome. But I feel terrible that his eye is stopping its function.
Avatar f tn I'm 20 and was diagnosed last November with endometriosis after having a cyst rupture while at work. I had a lot of cysts removed from my ovaries Via davinci assisted surgery. I've tried birth control with no luck, and most recently I've been on norethindrone 10mg a day and again am still having constant bleeding. What are the odds that the cysts have come back already in April? How many surgeries did you have?
Avatar f tn The metacril in the bottom lip has now turned into hard bumps, which I think was the result of going and having my teeth whitened afterwards and the Zoom laser hitting that area so long. Has anyone else had experience with metacril? Any recommended plastic surgeons in the Dallas area I can go to and follow up with this issue? Thanks!
Avatar n tn most likely it will not be severe enough to require the laser surgery, especially if you have always had normal smears. after my colonscopy, which came back fine, my pap smears went back to normal as well.
Avatar m tn The actually said I had a small tear in the left eye (the good one!) and performed laser surgery to prevent it from causing issues.....yes it has been quite the ordeal. From my reading on this condition, it is possible to see permanent vision damage from CSR but all the reports I've seen deal with patients with several recurrences.
418165 tn?1295757581 The quak doctor that said I had to have the histerectomy right away told me that my ovaries looked fine. Ok, so 3 weeks after the surgery I get these killer pains worse then before when I was bleeding all the time, it was so aweful, I think it was worse then child birth with both of my 2 girls. I go back to this doctor and he does a US and says that there's nothing wrong with me and basically pushes me out the door.
Avatar n tn I just had a mass in the wall of my Uterus and it was adenomyosis which is endometreosis in the wall. I went to an endometreosis specialist in NYC. I had severe abdominal pain on my left side and very heavy periods. It took a long time to diagnose. Did they find the mass with an ultrasound? Another symptom of adeno is an enlarged Uterus and very heavy periods.An MRI will show if the Uterus is enlarged mine was not. Mine was isolated and it was located behing my left ovary.
Avatar f tn What does that mean in terms of life functioning? And, if it happens, how can it be corrected? Surgery, laser, explant? I am very worried about making the best choices for the next step, and don't want a repeat of the problems I had. That my eyes are currently so disparate --I have fairly good distance vision out of Restor R eye but poor near/intermediate vision, and, with L cataract myopic eye, read but terrible distance- can't even read the E anymore on eye chart.
Avatar n tn Neese at the Laser Spine Institute said it was caused from muscle spasms in the L5 while we were awaiting for my husband to receive surgery. Prior to his surgery his only way to get around was either crawl on his hands and knees or to walk as close to the ground as he could with a walker for guidance. He could not sit, could not ride, had to lay on his belly even to go from Texas to Oklahoma City for the surgery. As of today he can now stand but still very painful to sit and or even drive.

Avatar n tn ORA intraoperative measurements to validate IOL power is one of those as is femtosecond laser. No studies have shown that femtosecond laser and ORA contribute to a better, safer surgery. More expensive for sure and does significantly improve the miniscule profit/case over what medicare pays. Medicare and insurance pay aboout 50% less now for cataract/IOL surgery than was paid in 1980's when you factor in inflation it's probably more like 1/3.
Avatar n tn healthy (although I realise this does not exclude me from more serious outcomes) although my mother has had ovarian cancer herself before too. If I do have to get surgery can you get laser or what does it entail AND can you still be fertile if they only remove one ovary. sooo many questions, I guess I can fire then at the specialist when I see them however I just want to know more.
Avatar f tn They dropped the ball on me bad and I feel worse than when I cane in!!! After the surgery which was on my left kidney(this uro does one @ a time)they gave me 10mgs of percocet to recover! I kept asking for my daily pain meds but the nurses refused. No one bothered to read my chart and see that I needed heavy narcotic medicine after surgery!
203589 tn?1267478770 In October of 04 I ran to my well respected eye surgeon with what seemed to be a detaching retina. He had previously done cataract surgery for me on both eyes and laser surgery for possible glaucoma. He tried to do a surgery on my eye in the office which did not work sufficient so the major overnight was scheduled for the surgery with the gas bubble and buckle and the face down experience for an extended period of time. It looked like it had worked but then the buckle let go.
