A training program is offered in oculoplastic and orbital surgery by the section of Oculoplastics, Orbital & Cosmetic Surgery of the Department of Ophthalmology at Emory University. The program provides a broadly based clinical experience in oculoplastic surgery, with the goal of training the physician to pursue a career in oculoplastic surgery.
The fellow is fully integrated into all aspects of medical and surgical treatments on the oculoplastics service. The fellow will work in the Emory Clinic, seeing patients with the two attending staff members, and will be exposed to a wide variety of oculoplastic disorders.
The fellow will learn appropriate diagnostic and management techniques and minor office surgical procedures. The fellow will assist the staff members with surgery at Emory Clinic outpatient surgery center, Emory University Hospital and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. The fellow will participate as an attending physician in resident surgeries and clinics at Grady Memorial Hospital and the VA Medical Center. The trauma service at Grady Memorial Hospital is very busy, and the fellow will function as the first-call physician for all oculoplastic procedures. The fellow will provide teaching support to the residency program in the form of lectures and Grand Rounds presentations. The fellow is expected to complete a research project that is submitted for publication.
Dr. Wojno manages patients covering the entire spectrum of oculoplastic disorders in both adult and pediatric patients. Joint surgeries are performed frequently with physicians in ENT, Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery and Oral Surgery.
