Expert Education

Dr. Moran attends Surgical convention to Learn…and to TeacH

At this year’s annual conference of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ASCRS), Dr. Moran was the speaker at two education sessions.  He spoke to other physicians and practice administrators at these workshops.

Sherman Reeves, M.D. M.P.H ; Thomas Harvey, M.D.; Mark Moran, D.O., M.S.H.I., F.A.O.C.O

An experienced cataract surgeon, Dr. Moran instructed fellow surgeons on a procedure that he uses when removing cataracts:  phaco-emulsification. This process uses an ultrasound device to break the cataract into small pieces that can be removed through a small incision.  A smaller incision means quicker healing and less discomfort for the patient.

This hands-on lab allowed other surgeons to practice the process while receiving instruction from Dr. Moran, Dr. Harvey and Dr. Reeves.  (pictured here).

Also at the conference, Dr. Moran also gave a presentation on Cybersecurity.  He is well-versed on the topic of technology in healthcare, with a Masters Degree in Healthcare Informatics.  This topic is critical for medical offices today, since keeping patient information secure is a priority.  This session was co-chaired with Dr. Gerald Meltzer, who is a practice consultant.
