Patient Testimonial: Previous Rib Cartilage Ear Reconstruction

Cedar Torrico is a handsome young man from Bolivia who has had a previous rib cartilage ear reconstruction with unsatisfactory result. He came Los Angeles last year and had Medpor ear reconstruction with Dr. Reinisch and is very happy with his new ear. He recently wrote to us: "I'm César from Bolivia. December 9, 2014 I entered the operating room with great faith and God's hand, confident that everything will go well. After a few hours, thanks to Dr. John Reinisch, I woke up and from that moment my life changed. Today I'm a person who feels secure, confident and am very happy since. Men who are occupied in the restoration of health to other men, by the joint exertion of skill and humanity, are above all the great of the earth. They even partake of divinity, since to preserve and renew is almost as noble as to create. Thank you so much Dr. John Reinisch, Mitzi Quintero and Julie Salas. God bless you."
