Smithtown, New York (PRWEB) November 28, 2016
Award-winning cataract and refractive surgeon, Dr. Jonathon Ellant, today announced his affiliation with North Shore Eye Care, a division of SightMD, New York’s largest and fastest-growing ophthalmic provider group, according to Jeffrey Martin, MD, Managing Partner of North Shore Eye Care.
“Dr. Ellant has been named ‘One of America’s Top Eye Surgeons’ every year since 1992, so my colleagues and I are obviously very proud to have someone of his caliber join our medical staff,” said Dr. Martin. “His fellowship training in both cataract and refractive surgery combined with his experience working with some of the world’s most renowned ophthalmic surgeons will be a tremendous asset to our practice and our patients.”
Dr. Ellant will continue seeing patients at his current practice 114 East 27th Street, NYC. The addition of these practices marks the 12th location for SightMD, an innovative ophthalmic provider group working out of numerous locations across New York. “It is truly an honor to join the medical staff of North Shore Eye Care and be part of New York’s premiere ophthalmology provider group,” said Dr. Ellant. “Their vision for combining state-of-the-art technology and surgical techniques with a commitment to personal, quality patient care mirrors the mission I’ve had for the past 16 years. We both believe that understanding our patients’ visual needs and matching them with the most advanced care regimens available today is essential to having healthy, happy and satisfied patients.”
For the past 14 years, Dr. Ellant has been voted ‘One of America’s Eye Surgeons" by the Research Council of America and is currently on the board of directors and medical advisory committee for the National Association for Visually Handicapped.
Dr. Ellant earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. In 1990, he then went on to earn his medical degree 1990 from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, where he also completed his internship. Dr. Ellant completed his ophthalmology residency at Lenox Hill Hospital - New York University School of Medicine and went on to complete a fellowship in cataract and refractive surgery with the world renowned eye surgeon, Dr. Howard Gimbel at the Gimbel Eye Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
“Completing my fellowship training in cataract and refractive surgery at the renowned Gimbel Eye Centre was a turning point in my medical career,” Dr. Ellant said. “It was the genesis of vision correction procedures like LASIK and refractive cataract surgery using phacoemulsification, which have both now become standards of care in ophthalmology. I have spent the past 16 years fine tuning our techniques in these areas and introducing the latest technology to enable us to provide patients superior results.
Dr. Ellant maintains hospital privileges across the area, including New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital and Mount Sinai Medical Center.
“As North Shore Eye Care, a division of SightMD continues their expansion across New York, we are excited by the caliber of physicians who are joining our medical staff and embracing our vision,” said Dr. Martin. “We look forward to not only working with Dr. Ellant but having him share his expertise with our patients and staff.”
Dr. Ellant is an active member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and a member of the board of directors and medical advisory committee of the National Association for Visually Handicapped.
