Overview

Dr. Dewey's practice encompasses a broad expertise in ophthalmology, from treating glaucoma and diabetic eye disease to corneal transplantation. His contributions to the field are mainly in the area of his practice emphasis-cataract surgery. He has developed a technique that improves the safety and efficiency of a particular step in cataract removal, and presented this at the 1998 American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in New Orleans. "My staff and I will take care of quite a few patients for cataract surgery in a given year," Dr. Dewey states. "Our intent is to personalize the experience for the patient as much as possible, and balance this with the best level of efficiency we can attain. While some practices employ 'surgical counselors' or use videotapes, I feel these are much too impersonal. I do all of my own counseling regarding the surgery and even measure the patients for their implants myself. This way, I can be certain I've answered all the patients' questions in general and identified to them how these things apply to their individual situation." Dr. Steven Dewey was born in Kansas City and raised in Independence, Missouri. There he graduated valedictorian from Truman High School and received numerous local, state and national awards for his efforts in journalism and forensics/debate. He spent the next nine years at the University of Missouri-Columbia, first graduating Phi Beta Kappa with General Honors in 1983 with a BA in Biology. He remained there to graduate Cum Laude with his degree in medicine in 1987, and was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha as well. He spent the next year as an intern at the University Hospital. He married during medical school and moved to Oklahoma City for his residency at the prestigious Dean A. McGee Eye Institute. Dr. Dewey has four children, all born in Colorado Springs. Outside the busy household, the family enjoys biking, hiking, skiing and swimming. Dr. Dewey is currently working to publish an article describing his unique cataract removal technique and to produce a corresponding videotape as an education tool for other ophthalmologists. Dr. Dewey has also created a videotape for his ophthalmology colleagues on a cataract procedure which was awarded Best of Show by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
