Facial nerve palsy can be a congenital abnormality (birth defect) or an acquired deformity (developed later), such as a result of a tumor or trauma. Our team of specialists is trained in the latest procedures for facial reanimation, including free muscle transfer, to help restore a symmetric (even) look to the face.

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Bell’s palsy (temporary weakness or paralysis of facial nerve)
  • Congenital facial nerve palsy (facial nerve problems at birth, either from birth trauma or developmental problems in the womb)
  • Moebius sequence (problem with nerves controlling facial and eye muscles, present at birth)
  • Tumors on or around the facial nerve
  • Traumatic injury
