Canadian Doctors list

Post by Mike Bartolatz »

Brenda's List of Canadian Doctors
This is a list of physicians in Canada who have expressed special interest in uveitis and whom members have found to be helpful resources. As an organization, we are not able to recommend these physicians to you one way or the other because we lack information about their training in Uveitis and/or Ocular Immunology (except as may be noted on the list).

We strongly recommend that anyone living with uveitis or other ocular inflammatory disease be treated by a physician who has completed advanced, Fellowship-level, training in Uveitis or in Ocular Immunology.

We are often asked what distinguishes a Uveitis Specialist from an Ocular immunologist.

A Uveitis Specialist is an ophthalmologist with a special, specific interest in uveitis, and who has become proficient in the diagnosis and management of patients with uveitis. The most straightforward way to do this is to complete at least one year of advanced training, a dedicated Uveitis Fellowship training program, aimed at development of expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of all forms off uveitis.

An Ocular Immunologist is an ophthalmologist who has, by virtue of advanced training in Ocular Immunology, developed highly specialized diagnostic and therapeutic skills in caring for patients with destructive inflammatory diseases of the eye mediated by abnormal immuno-regulatory processes. Ocular Immunologists have advanced training and clinical experience with all inflammatory diseases of the eye, with systemic autoimmune disease, and with systemic immunomodulatory chemotherapy.

If you are seeking a consultation regarding immunomodulatory chemotherapy for treatment of uveitis or other ocular inflammatory disease, it is worth knowing that physicians with advanced Fellowship-level training in Ocular Immunology are more likely to be equipped, by virtue of their training and experience, to render a balanced and expert opinion on the full range of treatment options that should be considered, and to be able to provide immunosuppression chemotherapy should it be recommended.

It is perfectly appropriate to ask any physician, whom you are considering having as part of your team, about their specific Fellowship training in Uveitis or Ocular Immunology (list of specialists).

If you are a physician who would like to be listed here, or if you are a patient with additional recommendations, please see the bottom of this list for contact information.
