Small Incision Intraocular Biopsy Essential Eye Cancer Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Small incision surgery usually means quicker recovery. Dr. Finger has brought machine-controlled, micro-incision biopsy surgery to the eye. Utilizing a device called an aspiration-cutter as well as machine modulatable suction, the Finger-Iridectomy-Technique typically offers enough tumor-tissue for the pathologist to perform cytology, histopathology and immunohistochemistry. Dr. Finger says, “You just can’t do that with a sharp, cutting, fine-needle biopsy (FNAB) technique.” Best of all, the biopsy wound is usually so small you don’t need any stitches. Dr. Finger uses this technique for tumors of the iris, ciliary body, and orbit.
