Parents with two young children

​what you should know

Parents should know that microtia is not caused by the mother or during pregnancy. Children will have normal speech development. Additionally, microtia is not associated with kidney disease or any other chronic diseases

Our Recommendations:

  1. Rule out a syndrome
  2. Confirm hearing in your child’s normal ear
  3. Consider a bone conduction hearing aid before six months of age
  4. Avoid x-rays & scans before child is two and a half years old
  5. Request a complimentary video consultation

Doctor, I keep staring at Eliah’s ear since I left you earlier today. I still can not believe it. You are a true magician and words will never be enough to express my gratitude. You have been a ray of hope since Eliah is born as I knew there was a solution. It is even better than what I was hopping for. You made him the most beautiful gift he can have in life. Thank you ”
