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:

  3. Consider a bone conduction hearing aid before six months of age

MICROTIA TREATMENT benefits your child

While the physical limitations of leaving microtia untreated are obvious, the psychological effects a child faces as they grow can also have a significant impact on both their confidence and their self-esteem. By addressing microtia early, surgical treatment allows a child to improve their hearing ability, which in turn allows them to develop more natural speech patterns. The earlier a child receives treatment, the lower the impact of microtia will have on their development. This can allowing them to enjoy their childhood free of any negative effects that my arise directly or indirectly from microtia.
