About me

* Hello, in editing my profile, it does not give me the option to edit my specialty. Under my name, my specialty should be listed as, Ophthalmology: Cornea, external disease, Cataracts & Comprehensive Ophthalmology 

 

Dr. Aruoriwo Oboh-Weilke has been an ophthalmologist at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital since 2009 and is currently an associate professor of Ophthalmology at the School of Medicine. She is also on staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

A fellow in the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Dr. Oboh-Weilke specializes in cataracts, other external diseases of the cornea and refractive procedures.

After receiving her medical degree from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Dr. Oboh-Weilke began a year-long research fellowship in neurosurgery at Rutgers/NYU. She subsequently fulfilled her internship at New York Hospital Queens and residency at the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center. Dr. Oboh-Weilke then completed a fellowship at The Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Dr. Oboh-Weilke is the co-author of a textbook chapter on advanced techniques in ophthalmologic surgery, and has published numerous abstracts.

Before joining MedStar, Dr. Oboh-Weilke was an ophthalmologist with the Dakota Clinic in Fargo and associate medical director of the North Dakota Eye Bank.
