Modern Retina - "How To Achieve A Calm, Stress-Free OR" - Ronald Gentile, MD

 – September 11, 2017  –– 

Achieving the best visual outcomes in challenging cases is a high priority in surgical retina. However, meeting that goal involves a high level of creativity, especially in complex cases associated with other ocular comorbidities. Ronald Gentile, MD, professor of ophthalmology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and director of ocular trauma service at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, described some of the tools he uses that ease tension in the operating room and make the postoperative course uneventful.  “Surgery is built on a solid foundation of the previous step,” Dr. Gentile said. “The ideal operating room experience should be calm and stress-free for all. We are really searching for operating room nirvana.”
