Administrative Secretary to the Department of Surgery- Ophthalmic Oncology Service Chief, Dr. David Abramson
We are: The Ophthalmic Oncology Service deals with benign and malignant tumors of the lids, orbit, optic nerve, surface of the eye (conjunctiva) and intraocular tumors in men and women, children and adults. Among intraocular tumors we have the largest retinoblastoma center in the world and one of the largest series of patients with uveal melanomas and metastatic ocular tumors. Because intraocular tumors are rarely biopsied much of our time are spent testing, evaluating and making clinical decisions for treatment based on clinical experience and test results (test we perform in our office such as ultrasound, digital imaging, optical coherence tomography, autofluorescence and angiography with fluorescein. We treat these many patients with surgery, brachytherapy, systemic and local chemotherapy, targeted molecules, external beam irradiation and recently with chemotherapy delivered via the ophthalmic artery.
Our physicians work closely with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, advanced practice providers, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Together we strive to fight cancer and to minimize the physical symptoms of cancer so everyone under our care can spend their lives doing what matters most to them.
