Microtia causes children to be born with a small, misshapen, or missing ear. Because the condition is so uncommon, only a few doctors have the necessary skill and knowledge to treat it successfully. Dr. John Reinisch is a renowned microtia surgeon. His patients and other physicians come from around the world to benefit from his skill, advanced techniques and compassion. To learn more about how microtia surgery can help your child, contact our office in Beverly Hills, California to schedule a consultation or speak with Dr. Reinisch.
Dr. Reinisch began working as a craniofacial and plastic surgeon in 1978, and he is the founder of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He currently serves as the Director of Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery for Cedars-Sinai Medical Group in Los Angeles. Of his many professional accomplishments, he is especially proud of his revolutionary innovations in microtia surgery. In 1991, he introduced the MEDPOR® ear reconstruction technique, which has become the foremost method of surgical microtia treatment. In addition to using the MEDPOR® method to treat adult and child microtia patients, he also treats a number of patients who suffer from traumatic ear deformity.
For over a decade, Dr. Reinisch has partnered with a skilled otologist, meaning he can also treat aural atresia and hearing loss, which can accompany microtia. Dr. Reinisch and his colleague believe that compromised hearing should be treated early on so that young patients’ language and speech skills can develop normally. Whenever possible, they recommend atresia repair, and for patients who are not good candidates for aural atresia surgery, there are several other effective treatment options available, such as bone anchored hearing aids (BAHA) and vibrant sound bridges.
Patients visit our office from dozens of countries to benefit from Dr. Reinisch’s outstanding skill and knowledge. Our team is fluent in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and Hungarian. They are committed to helping visiting patients feel comfortable and guiding them through all related financial and administrative processes.
Dr. Reinisch offers several financing options, including CareCredit™, and he proudly partners with the Small Wonders Foundation, a non-profit which he founded to provide financial assistance to families in need. Because many patients stay several weeks to benefit from ongoing supervision and care, the doctor proudly partners with the local Ronald McDonald House, which provides accommodations to families traveling for medical care.
Choosing a reputable microtia surgeon could be one of the most important decisions you make regarding your child's development. To learn more about the condition and available treatment options, schedule a consultation to speak with Dr. Reinisch today.
