The Choyce Medal Lecture - Robert Stegmann, South Africa

Elephants roam the game preserve not far from the office of Robert Stegmann, MD, outside Pretoria, South Africa. A self-proclaimed “bush surgeon,” he was raised in South African bush country, where life depends on self-reliance. Confidence and the ingenuity to survive are traits he has brought with him into the practice of ophthalmology.
“I grew up in the bush during my formative years. In the bush, you have to learn to survive,” Dr. Stegmann said. At the time when Dr. Stegmann was studying, ocular surgery under a microscope was still new, but when he saw such surgery performed – “It really blew my mind,” Dr Stegmann said. “It just seemed to be such absolute control.” Other factors drew Dr. Stegmann to ophthalmic surgery, along with its precision. “Ophthalmology seemed to combine a lot of stimulating challenges. There are very few diseases in the human body that do not manifest themselves one way or another in the visual system. It had a little bit of everything: mechanics, surgery, it had stimulation, medicine, decision-making, and it had great results,” he said.
Since Dr. Stegmann chose ophthalmology as his specialty he has made “bush surgery” something of a subspecialty, honing his skills to match the diseases and the types ocular trauma that most commonly affect his patient base in South Africa. Dr. Stegmann was first widely recognized for his early work with viscoelastics, substances that have made cataract surgery safer and more controlled. Today he is working to perfect his now widely known viscocanalostomy procedure for glaucoma. He continues to focus on ocular trauma in his daily practice.
