  4. Avoid X-Rays & scans before child is 2.5 years old

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 have a significant impact on both their confidence and their self-esteem. By addressing microtia early with 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.

Dr. Reinisch is the premier global microtia surgeon. He has successfully provided thousands of patients with natural-looking results with his innovative ear reconstruction techniques. Thousands of children have benefited from growing up with two functional ears. With the help of our surgeon and his staff of friendly medical professionals, Dr. Reinisch can help your child can live a full and healthy life.
