Facial Paralysis Conditions
Facial paralysis, either acute or chronic, is a complex disorder in its diagnosis and treatment, and warrants a team approach of experienced specialists to achieve optimal outcomes.
Our multidisciplinary team is here to help you and your loved ones understand your condition and determine an optimal treatment plan. Because of our expertise, we are able to treat patients with the most challenging forms of facial paralysis, including many with prior treatments and patients who have been deemed “cured” by other physicians. We do not believe a patient is “cured” until they say so themselves.
Our expertise includes treating the full spectrum of facial paralysis related disorders
- Bell’s palsy (idiopathic facial paralysis)
- Ramsay Hunt syndrome
- Facial paralysis related to brain tumors (acoustic neuroma)
- Facial paralysis related to tumors of the salivary gland (parotid gland)
- Facial Paralysis related to trauma of the facial nerve
- Chronic facial paralysis
- Congenital facial paralysis (occurring at birth)
