CLEARWATER – St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute, one of the world’s leading ophthalmology practices, opened a seventh location in downtown Clearwater Monday, Jan. 7.
Several community leaders attended the opening of the facility, which will provide 20 new jobs in the area.
St. Luke’s will offer ophthalmology services on the first floor of the Clearwater facility and is introducing Reflections at St. Luke’s, which will offer plastic surgery, aesthetic skin care and Mohs’ dermatology on the second floor.
“Reflections at St. Luke’s will pair the most advanced surgical techniques in plastic surgery with an extraordinary level of patient-centered care,” a press release said.
Dr. Nicolas Villanustre, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, who trained and then taught at Indiana University before joining St. Luke’s in early 2011, leads the plastic surgery team.
Dermatologist and Mohs’ surgeon Dr. David Sable has been with St. Luke’s since 2010. He has performed nearly 10,000 Mohs’ surgery cases.
Dr. Pit Gills leads the St Luke’s team of ophthalmologists who will now provide their Clearwater based patients with an unparalleled healthcare experience in a convenient location.
St. Luke’s Cataract & Laser Institute is headquartered in Tarpon Springs. The two newest facilities are in The Villages, which opened Dec. 3, and in Clearwater.
