Theodore Leng, MD, FACS
Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Adult MSD)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Leng was the first surgeon in California to perform a subretinal transplant of adult neural stem cells into patients with macular degeneration and is actively researching cellular, biologic and laser-based therapies for macular degeneration. He also has an active program in imaging informatics and deep learning to perform big data analyses of retinal scans to identify patients who are at risk for retinal disease deterioration. The end goal is earlier detection and rapid treatment to maximize visual outcomes.
Dr. Leng is considered a leading expert on optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT-based angiography (OCTA), a non-invasive and non-contact imaging technique for the retina. He is also considered a key opinion leader in artificial intelligence and data science.
