Iyer joins ophthalmology faculty

Iyer_SivaDr. Siva S. R. Iyer, a recent fellow in vitreoretinal surgery at the Louisiana State University College of Medicine, has joined the Medical Center faculty as an assistant professor of ophthalmology.

After receiving a B.A. in religion from the University of Florida, Iyer continued on at the University of Florida College of Medicine, earning an M.D. with honors and distinction in research in 2006. He completed his internship in general surgery at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School; an ophthalmology residency from 2008-11 at the Hamilton Eye Institute, University of Tennessee College of Medicine; and a vitreoretinal surgical fellowship from 2011-13 in the Department of Ophthalmology, Louisiana State University College of Medicine.

Iyer's research interests are in the role of fibrotic growth factors in the eye, including connective tissue growth factor. His clinical interests are in the repair of complex retinal detachments, including diabetic tractional retinal detachments and those involving proliferative vitreoretinopathy.

A lead author in a peer-reviewed professional publication and one book chapter, Iyer is a member of the American Society of Retina Specialists and the American Academy of Ophthalmology and is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
