Choosing a surgeon can be an overwhelming task for patients, particularly one that is going to be operating on your face. Credentials and experience matter, but even more so understanding what those credentials mean is extremely important. The field of Oculoplastics is a small sub specialty of Ophthalmology (the medical specialty that takes care of the eyes). Oculoplastic surgeons often pursue a fellowship after their Ophthalmology residency to focus their training and skills on the eyelids and orbital tissues. Dr. Laquis is fellowship trained through the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons – this fellowship program is highly competitive and is considered the best Oculoplastics training program in the world. Please visit their website www.asoprs.org to learn more about the exceptional training that this program provides. Additionally, beyond his board certification in Ophthalmology, he is also board certified through the American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery (www.ambrdfcs.org) – a certification that required extensive clinical training, and successful passing of both a written and oral comprehensive examination.
Since 2002 Dr. Laquis has provided Oculoplastic care to thousands of patients in Southwest Florida and beyond. His achievements are many – but more importantly, his patients are the true product of his success.
