Coordinated, specialty care for patients with Graves' eye disease

At the Thyroid Eye Disease Center at the Kellogg Eye Center, physicians provide the advanced, multidisciplinary care that is essential for patients experiencing the multiple symptoms and effects of Graves’ eye disease, also called thyroid eye disease or TED. In addition, these clinician–scientists are widely recognized for their groundbreaking research on treatments for Graves’ eye disease and related autoimmune disorders.

Our team of specialists includes orbital surgeons, strabismus surgeons, orthoptists, and neuro-ophthalmologists who are expert and experienced in the unique needs of patients with Graves' eye disease. This team works closely with others in the U-M Health System to provide the multispecialty care needed to treat the wide range of symptoms experienced by our patients.
