What is the right age for my child to start reconstruction?

The timing will consider the functional problems, social integration, and minimizing the number of surgical procedures. Your child’s treatment plan, including the best timing of the procedure, is unique for your child. Many of the procedures including jaw and ear reconstruction, happen between the ages of 5-8 years of age. ‘Final-stage’ procedures happen in the late teen aged years.

Which specialists should be following my child?

Dr. Bradley will work with the ENT surgeon, Orthodontist, Speech Pathologist, Audiologist, and other specialist closely so that all needs are met at the appropriate time.
