Dr. Burjor Phiroze Banaji
Dr. Burjor Banaji is the third generation in a line of distinguished ophthalmic surgeons that began nearly a hundred years ago with his grandfather Dr. Burjor P Banaji (Senior). His father Dr. Phiroze Banaji was one of the country's leading ophthalmic surgeons and teachers, credited with introducing modern retinal detachment surgery and corneal transplantation to India.
After completing post graduate studies in the United Kingdom in 1988, Dr. Burjor Banaji returned to Mumbai to take over the family practice. In keeping with the family tradition of being at the cutting edge of ophthalmology throughout the last century, Dr. Banaji introduced several firsts in the field of ophthalmology to India. Banaji Eyecare is the first clinic to use the diode laser in the treatment of retinal disorders; it is also amongst the first clinics to start phacoemulsification cataract surgery and more recently, the revolutionary LASIK procedure. More than a decade ago, Dr. Banaji and a handful of surgeons across the world were perfecting a revolutionary new procedure called LASIK. Recognizing the enormous potential to help those afflicted with glasses and contact lenses, Dr. Banaji became the pioneering surgeon in Asia to persevere in mastering this demanding technique. Dr. Banaji has performed thousands of LASIK procedures and is considered to be one of the leading authorities on this procedure.
Recognizing his pioneering work on the subject, Dr. Banaji is also an invited teacher to prestigious institutions of learning such as the Harvard Medical School in Boston, the Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, and the Eye Foundation Hospital in Alabama. He has been the chief instructor on courses teaching the LASIK procedure at several meetings of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons held in Boston, San Diego and Seattle. Dr. Banaji has also invented several surgical instruments for LASIK, which are now used by surgeons the world over.
