Amniotic Membrane Surgery
Dr. Gulani’s continual research and experience enhances his ability to provide the latest, most comprehensive surgical options to his patients. For instance, he is a world-renowned leader in the field of Amniotic Membrane Transplantation (AMT). This surgery is used to address:
- Corneal scars
- Dry eyes
- Conjunctivol chalasis
The amniotic membrane is derived from a donated human placenta which has been screened and preserved and made commercially available to physicians. It can replace the eye’s surface and temporarily act as a support matrix, helping the eye tissue to heal. In fact Dr. Gulani uses a no-stitch technique using specialized glue.
Dr. Gulani also uses it to heal corneal scars and he has included it in his Corneoplastique™ procedure, to improve both vision and the appearance of the eyes.
He has developed unique surgical techniques and designed specialized instruments for these new surgeries. Not surprisingly, he has many grateful and delighted patients. His work has been written about in medical journals and in the news media worldwide.
