About Elite Bor Shavit, M.D.
Elite Bor Shavit, M.D. earned her Medical Degree from Semmelweis University Faculty of Medicine in Budapest, Hungary followed by a Residency in Ophthalmology at Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Hospital, Petah Tikvah, Israel. She then completed a fellowship in Vitreoretinal Surgery at The University of Ottawa Eye Institute at Ottawa General Hospital in Ottawa, Canada. Dr. Bor-Shavit brings D’Ambrosio Eye Care patients the clinical experience and patient management techniques gained through her participation in numerous clinical studies in the application of drugs and treatments to inhibit new blood vessel growth (“angiogenesis”).
