Facial Reanimation

Facial Reanimation

Elizabeth A. Bradley, M.D., ophthalmic plastic surgeon, discusses the care of patients with facial nerve disorders via the Facial Paralysis and Reanimation Clinic at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minn. The clinic treats patients of all ages and with all durations of facial nerve palsy, as well as synkinesis. Facial nerve disorders are well-suited to a collaborative approach to care, notes Dr. Bradley, and surgical options for patients with facial nerve palsy include static and dynamic approaches.
