Dr. Peter Sguigna received a bachelor of science degree in biomedical engineering as well as a minor in Mathematics from Texas A&M University, and completed his advanced degrees in medicine, neurology, as well as multiple sclerosis and neuroimmunology from the University of Texas Southwestern. In March of 2020 he was recruited to stay at the University of Texas Southwestern to lead its neuro-ophthalmology initiative within the Department of Neurology. He sees patients with multiple sclerosis, optic neuritis, and other neuro-immunological disorders.
Dr. Sguigna's research interests and activities include advanced diagnostic imaging of neuro-ophthalmological disorders, as well as unraveling the neuro-retinal circuitry in neuroimmunological diseases. He actively works on better ways to distinguish these disorders using non-invasive technology. He uses specialized testing to gain insight into some of the most disabling symptoms for patients with multiple sclerosis. Lastly, he coordinates for clinical trials for better treatment of patients with multiple sclerosis.
