Dr. Kwitko is among the nation’s foremost surgeons specializing eye problems caused by in Graves’ disease, or thyroid eye disease, an autoimmune condition that develops when the body’s immune functions attack the thyroid gland. This same autoimmune response affects the muscles and connective tissue in the eye, resulting in eyelid retraction, light sensitivity, dryness, difficulty seeing, or other symptoms. Thyroid eye disease can cause a great amount of discomfort for those who suffer from it, and in some cases, vision can be permanently affected without timely interventi
In addition to thyroid eye surgery, Dr. Kwitko has extensive experience conducting other reconstructive and cosmetic procedures in the eye area, including blepharoplasty (reduction of eye bags or sagging eyelids), tearing surgery, removal of eyelid tumors and orbital cancers, cosmetic eyelid surgery, and orbital surgery.
