Orbital Disease & Tumors

When it comes to orbital tumors and other orbital diseases, experience matters. The delicate structures around the eye are incredibly complicated and prone to injury with the slightest misstep. An improper surgery can lead to inadequate treatment, loss of function in the eye or eye socket, or even death.

Whether you have been diagnosed with a tumor, inflammation, or other growth in the orbit, Dr. Ramesh has experience in dealing with these difficult conditions. For many years, Dr. Ramesh has written scientific articles and contributed to innovation in orbital disease. Dr. Ramesh has also published on elegant, minimally-invasive techniques (for example, endoscopic) to treat these conditions without needing large scars or openings. This has led to shorter surgeries, minimal or no hospital stay, and faster recovery, meaning you can get back to your life as soon as possible.

As an expert and thought leader in the fields of orbital tumors, vascular tumors, and orbital inflammatory disease, Dr. Ramesh has significant experience and is on the cutting edge of medical research. When it comes to the orbit, don’t settle – you need a surgeon who is a leader in the field. Dr. Ramesh looks forward to meeting with you to discuss your situation.

How is surgery performed?

Surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and may take 1 – 3 hours. Incisions, if necessary, are placed in the hidden folds of the eyelids such that they are invisible to the naked eye. Often, Dr. Ramesh is able to use the endoscope such that no incisions on the skin are necessary. Dr. Ramesh may work in conjunction with an interventional radiologist, particularly in the case of vascular tumors, or tumors made of blood vessels.

Are there any side effects to surgery?

Patients often have temporary numbness around the surgical site that resolves in a matter of days to weeks. Patients may also have double vision that also resolves in a matter of weeks. The size of the tumor or condition greatly impacts these factors, and patients with more serious disease can expect a longer recovery period. Risk of damage to the vision, nerves, or other permanent side effects are fortunately rare.

What is the aftercare?

There are typically no patches, bandages, or dressings to the eye. After surgery, you will have bruising and swelling in the area that lasts 7-10 days and improves slowly. You will have to apply an antibiotic ointment for 1-2 weeks to keep the tissues lubricated and moist.

Does insurance cover surgery for orbital disease?

Health insurance typically covers surgery for orbital conditions. International patients will be given a quotation that covers all aspects of surgery and treatment. Please schedule a consultation so that we can comprehensively assess your eye and determine the best plan for you.
