Reconstructive Surgery for Orbital Tumors and Fractures

When trauma or injury to the orbital socket or area near or around the eyes occurs, the consequences can be significant. If left untreated, one can inevitably lose or tarnish their eyesight as a result. Dr. Schwarcz recommends repair and/or reconstructive surgery depending on the circumstances and nature of the condition. If an orbital tumor metastasizes, it can be one of the following:

  • Optic Gliomas
  • Osteomas
  • Hemangiomas and Lymphangiomas
  • Sarcomas
  • Fibrous Histiocytomas
  • Retinoblastoma
  • Meningiomas
  • Schwannomas/Neurofibroma

If an orbital tumor is present, cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Schwarcz will surgically remove the tumor by small incisions near the eye. Contact our practice to schedule your appointment to learn more about orbital tumor and fracture removal.
