He then received his medical degree from Tulane University in New Orleans. After medical school he completed his residency training in Ophthalmology at Louisiana State University. During his residency the Louisiana area was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Culotta was one of the first responders to the catastrophe. He was uniquely qualified to help address the thousands of ocular injuries and foreign bodies that were seen in the aftermath. Following this dramatic experience, he chose again to help the people of New Orleans by completing a vitreo-retinal surgery fellowship in the area with renowned retina pioneer, Dr. Kurt Gitter. Dr. Culotta has special interest in macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, and vitreo-retinal interface abnormalities, such as epiretinal membranes and macular holes.Dr Culotta is a pioneer in the treatment of advanced diabetic macular edema and complex macular degeneration. He has worked extensively at developing novel algorithms for layering laser photocoagulation into treatment paradigms of intravitreal avastin injections for patients with recalcitrant diabetic edema. At the Retina Institute of California, Dr. Culotta is the head of the Advanced laser therapeutics lab investigating new treatment protocols for neovascular diseases. He is a member of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
