American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

John A. Long, M.D. and Matthew G. Vicinanzo, M.D. serve as preceptors for a fellowship sponsored by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This fellowship is one of a few programs in the United States certified to train the next generation of oculoplastic surgeons. The fellowship lasts two years and covers the width and breadth of Oculoplastic surgery. The fellow is a board-eligible or board-certified ophthalmologist who is licensed to practice medicine in the state of Alabama. The fellow has completed a residency in Ophthalmology prior to starting the fellowship. With the training prior to the fellowship, the fellow can practice comprehensive Ophthalmology just as any other ophthalmologist in the United States; however, he or she has chosen to spend two additional years in training to refine the skills necessary to perform advanced surgery in the areas of eyelid, lacrimal and orbit.

The fellow participates in functional and reconstructive surgery at the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital, Cooper Green Hospital, Veterans Administration Hospital, University Hospital, and Children's Hospital. Cosmetic surgery of the eyelids is a large part of the training that a fellow in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery receives. During the fellowship, the fellow has the opportunity to perform cosmetic surgery at the office of Alabama Ophthalmology Associates. Dr. Long or Dr. Vicinanzo is always present in the facility while this fellow performs surgery.
