Dr. Stewart obtained his undergraduate degree from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. He then attended Tulane University School of Public Health in New Orleans,
Louisiana. Tulane is one of the only schools in the world offering formal education in tropical medicine, and Dr. Stewart obtained a Masters of Science in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
Dr. Stewart continued on at Tulane in the School of Medicine, receiving his M.D. in 2000. While in New Orleans, Dr. Stewart was the president of his medical school class

Colorado. At CU, he served as chief resident during his final year of residency.
Dr. Stewart then returned to New Orleans to complete two separate fellowships at Tulane University. He trained under the people who started LASIK in the United States, and
continued to garner surgical skills for managing dense cataracts and aggressive glaucoma. Dr. Stewart was appointed clinical instructor at Tulane University. As an active member of
the teaching staff, Dr. Stewart taught cataract surgery to residents at Louisiana State University/Charity Hospital.

refractive surgery, and anterior segment disease.
Dr. Stewart moved back to Colorado in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He currently lives in Boulder with his wife, two daughters, and two energetic Golden
