About Rattehalli R. Sudesh, MD

I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2002 as an Ophthalmologist with sub-speciality training in Oculoplastics, Orbital Surgery and Neuro-ophthalmology. I grew up in Bangalore, India, the technology hub of India. I studied medicine at Bangalore Medical College and received my Medical Degree from Bangalore University in 1986. Soon after, I moved to the United Kingdom and trained as an Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck Surgeon. I received a Diploma in Otolaryngology (DLO RCS) from the Royal College of Surgeons, London and obtained a Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh (FRCS Ed). In 1994 my family relocated to the United States. I started an Ophthalmology Residency at State University of New York, Buffalo, NY and a Fellowship in Oculoplastics, Orbital Surgery and Neuro-ophthalmology at Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA. As a sub-specialist at Santa Clara, I deal with a wide variety of cases. Oculoplastics deals with abnormalities of eyelids and the periocular area, (Drooping, Baggy eyes), growth around eyes (benign and malignant), orbital trauma , orbital tumors and disorders of tearing. Neuro-ophthalmology deals with disorders of the optic nerve and its connections with the brain, including eye motility disorders (crossed eyes). I am fluent in Kannada and have a working knowledge of Hindi.
