Bruno Trindade MD PhD
Never settle for less. Driven by the highest standards and perfectionism, Bruno Trindade is a young Ophthalmologist with passion for the field of cataract surgery and corneal transplants. After graduating from Medical School at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil in 2006, he has done three corneal fellowships. The first, in Brazil, at the Federal University of Minas Gerais. After that, he trained at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary - Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA and then, at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. After returning to Brazil, he defended his PhD thesis about intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery at the Federal University of Minas Gerais and became Professor of Ophthalmology at the Feluma Medical Sciences Medical School. He is currently the head of the Cornea Department at the Feluma Eye Institute, the biggest public ophthalmic institution in the state of Minas Gerais. Dr. Trindade is part, together with his brother, Claudio Trindade, MD, of the team responsible for the development and trial of a new concept of intraocular implant to treat irregular corneal astigmatism. The XtraFocus Implant was introduced in 2014 and has received many important international awards. Bruno Trindade has won a best-paper-of-session award at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Annual Meeting with a presentation showing the implantation of an XtraFocus device even after complications during surgery. He has won the important Golden Apple Award for the best challenging case in cataract presented at the 2020 ASCRS Meeting highlighting the use of the XtraFocus implant in cases of keratoconus. Dr. Trindade has also published many high-impact scientific articles in different international journals and is always being invited to give talks in many national and international Medical Congresses.
Here you can find Dr. Trindade's main published papers.
Corneal transplantation is the most successful organ transplantation surgery. This is because the cornea has no blood vessels. Therefore, the risk of rejection is much less than a vascularized tissue.
Cataract surgery is the most performed medical operation in the entire medicine. The precision and technology involved in this surgery provide a painless procedure and fast visual rehabilitation.
Refractive surgery is a procedure to reshape the cornea to provide good vision without glasses or contact lenses. A laser is used to remove corneal tissue and produce a new refractive surface. It is used to correct myopia (nearsightness), hyperopia (farsightness) and atigmatism.
