Dr. Goltschman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Goltschman "Dr. John P. Goltschman has been a practicing eye surgeon in St. Louis for over thirty-five years. He is board certified and has performed thousands of cataract surgeries since beginning his practice in 1977. Dr. Goltschman performs "no stitch, no patch" cataract surgical procedures. With use of the latest technology, the surgery requires only a small, self-closing incision with no stitches. Most patients can resume their normal routine the day after surgery. He, along with Dr. Marvin Koenig, opened The Cataract Surgery Center in 1983 in Florissant, MO. This facility was the first freestanding outpatient surgery center in the St. Louis area designed specifically for surgery of the eye. As president of The Eye Center, Dr. Goltschman has implemented his practice philosophy of utilizing the latest technology to better treat patients. At The Eye Center he services patients in St. Louis as well as the surrounding metropolitan areas of St. Charles County and the Illinois regions of Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County. Dr. Goltschman is a graduate of Saint Louis University School of Medicine. He completed his ophthalmology residency at Tulane University. Dr. Goltschman is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Missouri Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons, St. Louis Ophthalmological Society, St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society, and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons."
