He is a fellow both of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastics & Reconstructive Surgeons and completed a two year accredited ASOPRS fellowship at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL. He has been an invited lecturer nationally and has published numerous articles and book chapters during his career.
