Sutureless Corneal Transplant
DSMEK and DSEK are corneal transplant procedures to replace damaged, cloudy cells in the cornea with healthy cells from a donor. Endothelial cells can die off because of conditions such as Fuchs’ Endothelial Dystrophy, Cornea Guttata, or Pseudophakic Corneal Edema. Dr. Schulze began performing DSEK in 2005, and was one of the pioneering surgeons in the United States to begin performing DMEK in 2008, after learning the procedure from its inventor, Gerritt Melles, in Holland.
