Theodore Leng, MD, FACS
Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
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), a non-invasive and non-contact imaging technique for the retina. He is also a leader in OCT-based angiography (OCTA), a novel way of imaging the microvasculature of the retina.
