    • Health & Fitness

In this episode, I talk with Carla Siegfried, Jacquelyn E. and Allan E. Kolker, MD Distinguished Professor of Ophthalmology and Vice-Chair of Diversity, Equity, and Professionalism at Washington University School of Medicine, about the gold standard glaucoma surgical procedure: the trabeculectomy. We exchange detailed tips for success for each step of the surgery and post-operative care. It is clear from our discussion that we must continue to train others so that the trabeculectomy does not become a lost art. This is a procedure requiring no special devices and remains the gold standard for achieving low pressures despite its higher complication rate compared to other procedures.
