Meet Ophthalmologist Ragh Sastry – Cosmetic Eye Surgery for San Jose and Morgan Hill/Gilroy Residents
Ragh Sastry, MD is part of a small percentage of plastic surgeons in the United States with training in ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, and facial cosmetic surgery. Ophthalmic plastic surgery deals with diseases affecting the eyelids, tear ducts, muscles and nerves surrounding the eyeball and the bones of the eye socket. As a board certified ophthalmologist, he treats his San Jose area patients with the latest microsurgical techniques. Other surgical specialists regularly seek his expertise in cosmetic eye surgery in San Jose, Gilroy, and across the country. He has collaborated with ENT surgeons, neurosurgeons, general plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, and dermatologists.
Dr. Ragh Sastry received his bachelor's degree in computer engineering from New York University. While at NYU, he also studied art and photography. At the end of his freshman year, he registered for art and theater courses for the summer semester at the University College of London.
Because of this knowledge in art, he has a highly developed aesthetic sense. His Asian-Indian heritage has made him acutely aware of racial and ethnic variations in facial structures. It is this combination of aesthetic sense and knowledge of microsurgical techniques that makes him a superb cosmetic surgeon. Nowhere is this combination more critical than in cosmetic facial and eye surgery. His background in computer engineering enables him to understand the impact of technology on surgery. Through the use of lasers and radio frequency technology, he is able to rejuvenate the face with minimal down time.
He completed medical school at State University of New York-Downstate Medical Center and did his ophthalmology residency at Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Over the course of his internship, he completed a clinical research elective in otology/skull base surgery at The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary. After his residency, he did a fellowship in ophthalmic plastic and facial cosmetic surgery under the guidance of Dr. Amiya Prasad in New York City.
Dr. Sastry routinely gives lectures to ophthalmologist groups and other doctors in the San Jose area. He is on staff at most of the hospitals in the Santa Clara County.
