Product description

Are you looking for concise, practical answers to those questions that are often left unanswered by traditional references on uveitis? Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for the daily examination of patients? Curbside Consultation in Uveitis: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions most commonly posed during a "curbside consultation" between experienced clinicians. Dr. Stephen Foster has designed this unique reference in which uveitis specialists offer expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly encountered by ophthalmologists, residents, and other health care professionals. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to uveitis with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and to illustrate clinical diagnoses and treatment plans. Curbside Consultation in Uveitis: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert pearls that even high-volume ophthalmologists will appreciate. Refractive surgeons, general ophthalmologists, and residents alike will enjoy the user-friendly and casual format. Some of the questions that are answered: * How do the results of the Systemic Immunosuppressive Therapy for * Eye Disease (SITE) Cohort Study apply to the care of my patients with uveitis? * How should I evaluate and treat a patient with uveitis? * How should I treat macular edema in a patient with uveitis? * How should I treat a pregnant woman with macular threatening toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis? * When should I refer a patient with uveitis to a uveitis specialist?

"C. Stephen Foster., MD, FACS, FACR" was born and raised in West Virginia, received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry at Duke University, with Distinction and Phi Beta Kappa in 1965, and received his Doctor of Medicine Degree at Duke University Medical Center, in 1969, being elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. He trained in Internal Medicine at Duke University Hospital from 1969 to 1970, and at the National Heart and Lung Institute, at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, from 1970 to 1972, during which time he also taught Internal Medicine, with an appointment as Instructor in Medicine at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington, DC. In 1972, Dr. Foster entered his Ophthalmology Residency training program at Washington University (Barnes Hospital), in St. Louis, Missouri, and having completed that in 1975, traveled to Boston to do 2 additional Fellowship trainings in Cornea and External Diseases, and in Ocular Immunology. He completed this training in 1977 and was invited to join the full- time faculty of the Department of Ophthalmology of Harvard Medical School, where he was a member of the Cornea Service and Director of the Residency Training Program at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. He began his independent research in 1977 and has since been continuously funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health. After 30 years on the full time faculty of Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, he decided to establish his own private practice--The Massachusetts Eye Research and Surgery Institution, a state of the art 12,000 square foot practice with its own chemo- therapy infusion suite and phlebotomy lab. Dr. Foster continues to direct a research labo- ratory at the Massachusetts Eye Research and Surgery Institution (MERSI), through the support of his newly created research foundation, The Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation, and continues his teaching activities and training fellows as a Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. He has also authored over 600 published papers and 5 textbooks.
