The father of Andrea Kossler, MD, is a surgeon and her sister an ophthalmologist, so she was torn between those two specialties. After medical aid trips to Bolivia and Cambodia, she figured out that oculoplastic surgery would be just right. It was the perfect fit for her.
Now, Dr. Kossler is an expert in surgery to treat orbital tumors, eyelid cancer, eyelid malposition, and Graves' disease. At Stanford Health Care's Byers Eye Institute, she is the director of oculoplastic cosmetic surgery and treatments, and the co-director of ophthalmic plastic and reconstruction surgery.
