We live near the Wilmer Eye Institute (WEI) of Johns XXXXXXX Hospital in Baltimore. My wife was seen by Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX a vitreoretinal surgeon of WEI. How does WEI rank among the best eye institutes in regards to vitreoretinal surgery, and specifically how does Dr. XXXXXXX rank among her peers?

Thanks for writing in again.

Coming to your specific queries:

1. Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns XXXXXXX Hospital in Baltimore, ranks third in regards to ophthalmology services in the US during the year 2013.

Being in the top three in the country, WEI doctors are experienced enough to handle challenging areas in ophthalmic surgery including vitreoretinal surgery.

Ranking of ophthalmology hospitals in US 2013

#1 Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami
Miami, FL

#2 Wills Eye Hospital
Philadelphia, PA

#3 Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns XXXXXXX Hospital
Baltimore, MD

2. Specifically how does Dr. XXXXXXX rank among her peers?

Following professional information was found concerning Dr, Scott:

Dr XXXXXXX treats patients across the broad spectrum of vitreoretinal medical and surgical diseases, and specializes in treating macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusions, macular holes, retinal detachments, and epiretinal membranes.

She interned at the XXXXXXX Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia and went on to complete her Ophthalmology residency at the Duke University Eye Center. During her residency, Dr. XXXXXXX received the Ocular Innovation Award, the K. XXXXXXX Dastgheib Eye Surgery Award, and the XXXXXXX K. Isbey, Jr. M.D. Award for clinical excellence. She remained at the Duke Eye Center to complete her two-year fellowship training in Vitreoretinal Surgery.

I suppose with the achievements mentioned above, Dr. XXXXXXX at 38 years of age, might be among the best retina surgeons at WEI in the younger generation.

Medical sciences is an ever evolving field with new research happening each day and newer areas being explored to give patient the best choices in treatments available.

Hope your query is answered.
Wishing you good health.
