Dr. William F. Deegan III, the region’s only Ocular Oncologist, was featured in a recent Current Newspapers’ article that detailed his use of the Plaque Brachytherapy procedure to successfully treat a D.C. patient with Ocular Melanoma, one of the few potentially life-threatening eye diseases. Dr. Deegan is the only retinal surgeon in the Washington metropolitan area to perform the very complicated procedure that involves implanting a radiation disc onto the eye and in most cases results in the shrinking of the tumor.
