An outstanding vitreoretinal surgeon with numerous publications in professional journals and noted presentations at international congresses on vitreoretinal surgery.

He deals with the problems of the retina and the vitreous body of the eye globe (vitreoretinal surgery), with a special interest in macular problems, performing extraordinary macular surgery.

His great work covers anterior segment surgery as well, especially cataract and refractive laser and lens implant surgery.

With his huge surgical experience he has achieved fantastic results in vitreomacular surgery and in solving macular problems, inoperable until recently (macular hole, macular pucker – epiretinal membrane, vitreomacular traction syndrome etc.).

He is among the first doctors in Europe who have started to apply minimally invasive vitreoretinal surgery with 25-gauge and 23-gauge instrumentation, meaning a special comfort for the patient: a vitreoretinal surgery without stitches, with fast recovery, resembling anterior segment surgery, and excellent postoperative results.

Working as an anterior segment surgeon as well as vitreoretinal surgeon, he is one of the first doctors who have started to apply combined surgery of cataract and vitrectomy (phaco-vitrectomy), which is particularly significant for solving the problems of diabetic retinopathies and cataracts, as a less invasive procedure using gas tamponade (one surgery), as well as silicon oil tamponade in advanced cases.

In severe cases of diabetic retinopathy, he applies bilateral vitreoretinal surgery, if necessary.

In the treatment of the macula he uses extensive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, such as the performance of PDT therapy guided with 3D OCT monitoring, and the application of antiVEGF intravitreally, with excellent postoperative results.

He participates in educational programmes for vitreoretinal surgeons all over the world. Between September 1996 and May 1997 he worked at the Retina Department of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard Medical School in Boston, where he was involved mainly in research regarding the mechanism of neovascularization.

He is a member of the Hungarian Medical Chamber and of the Hungarian Association of Ophthalmologists, European and American Society of Vitreoretinal surgeons (EU Retina, EVRS, AVRS), AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology) etc.

He was the head of the Ophthalmology Department of “Petz Aladar” County Teaching Hospital, Győr Hungary. Affiliated professor of ophthalmology at the Faculty of Medicine at the Semmelweis University, Budapest.
