Dr. Greenbaum's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Greenbaum "In addition to being a caring physician, I have always been creative and an inventor. I have developed many of the steps I use today to remove cataracts and to treat dry eyes. I have gone so far as to have been awarded a US Patent on a device I invented to numb the eye before all major types of eye surgery. The Greenbaum Anesthesia Cannula has been used all over the world, successfully, saving patients from the known complications of needle delivered Anesthesia. "
