Susvimo for Wet AMD
Dr. Marcus has worked and helped develop the first and only twice yearly treatment for wet AMD. Known as Susvimo, this port delivery system was recently approved by the FDA. Susvimo implant is placed surgically in your eye at Southeast Retina Center’s surgery center. Dr. Marcus is the only retina specialist with experience with this surgery in the Augusta area and has over 30 patients in their clinical trials leading to FDA approval of this treatment. After surgical placement, the implant is refilled at most twice a year with office injections. This reduces your need for frequent monthly injections. The Susivmo implant, with twice a year injections, results in vision outcomes as good as patients who receive standard injections every month. Dr. Marcus now lectures to retina doctors around the world helping them learn the new techniques required for Susvimo surgery.
