Joshua N. Steiner, M.D. is a board-certified and fellowship-trained vitreoretinal surgeon with expertise in macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, and retinal tears and detachments. For more than a decade, Dr. Steiner was an attending surgeon at the renowned National Retina Institute. In more recent years, he served as Vitreoretinal Fellowship Director where he trained medical and surgical fellows. He has participated in numerous national vitreoretinal clinical trials. Dr. Steiner completed his vitreoretinal fellowship training at the National Retina Institute and earned his medical degree at Wayne State University School of Medicine.
