Dr. Renzo A. Zaldívar
Dr. Renzo A. Zaldívar’s specialties include aesthetic and reconstructive aspects of the face, eyelids, brow, orbital bones, and tear duct system.
Dr. Zaldívar trained in ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic, completed a year of ophthalmic pathology at Emory University in Atlanta, and two additional years of Oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Mayo Clinic and University of Minnesota. His unique training has granted him recognition and membership into the prestigious American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. This society, founded in 1969, was established to recognize surgeons who have training and experience in this unique field. There are fewer than 600 national and international members. In addition to rigorous training, membership into the society requires the presentation and acceptance of a formal thesis, plus successful passage of both written and oral examinations.
Dr. Zaldívar has authored over 20 publications including book chapters and journal articles. He is frequently asked to lecture locally and nationally. Since 2009, Consumers’ Research Council of America has listed him in America’s Top Ophthalmologist. Well respected by his peers and colleagues, Renzo has mastered the art of patient care. Dr. Zaldívar spends his time in carefully crafting an individualized and customized treatment plan for his patients.
Recently, Dr. Zaldívar was given the honor to join the University of North Carolina’s Department of Ophthalmology as a clinical assistant professor. As part of his commitment to serve North Carolina’s patient population, Dr. Zaldívar has devoted his time to care for our nation’s veterans, and travels to the Fayetteville Veteran’s Hospital to serve our nation’s heroes.
When not practicing Oculofacial surgery, Dr. Zaldívar enjoys traveling, sports, golf, and spending time with his wife and two children.
