If a pterygium is simply removed by a doctor, there is an 80% chance it will grow back. Drs. Klein & Scannapiego have developed IsoWhiteTM pterygium removal surgery which is a special combination of techniques that not only prevents your pterygium from growing back more than 99% of the time, but also provides excellent cosmetic results. Surgery can be done in just 10 minutes and without pain. Our doctors use a special medical glue to hold tissues together so that there are no stitches. You will have your normal vision (or better) immediately after the surgery. You can go right back to your normal activities – no need to miss work. Even if you have had previous unsuccessful surgery, Drs. Klein and Scannapiego can use IsoWhiteTM to help you achieve the results you want.
Additionally, IsoWhiteTM pterygium surgery can be done in the Elizabeth office so that patients without insurance can avoid high hospital fees. In-office surgery can save up to 70% on the cost of surgery.
