Orbit/Eye Socket Surgery
Dr. Reistad is a trained orbital surgeon. The orbit or eye socket is a boney cavity that contains the eyeball, fat, blood vessels, as well as the muscles (6) that move the eye, the optic nerve and other nerves. Conditions that can necessitate orbit or eye socket surgery include orbital tumors (biopsy or excision), blind painful eyes or eyes with intraocular tumors (enucleation or removal of the eyeball), thyroid eye disease (orbital decompression) and eye socket fractures (orbital fracture repair). Dr. Reistad also treats inflammatory and infectious conditions of the orbit.
