An ear deformity is more than just an aesthetic blemish: it has the potential to effect an individual socially, emotionally, and even physically in the form of hearing loss.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
La Peer Health Systems, an outpatient surgery center in Los Angeles, is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new website, http://www.EarSurgeryMD.com, dedicated entirely to ear conditions and deformities. The wealth of educational resources found on the website is an extension of the Ear Surgery Center of Excellence, a sub-division of La Peer Health Systems that primarily focuses on the treatment of microtia, a congenital ear deformity.
The Ear Surgery Center of Excellence is directed by renowned facial plastic surgeon Carlo Honrado, MD, FACS, and has brought together a team of leading experts in the fields of otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, & Throat surgery) and plastic & reconstructive surgery.
“An ear deformity is more than just an aesthetic blemish: it has the potential to effect an individual socially, emotionally, and even physically in the form of hearing loss,” said Dr. Honrado. “By offering a variety of the most advanced treatment options, it is our goal to provide each patient with optimal results in a highly individualized manner.”
When considering reconstructive ear surgery, microtia patients are faced with two primary possibilities – autologous and synthetic reconstruction – each of which has distinct advantages. Surgeons at the Ear Surgery Center of Excellence have expertise in both reconstructive methods, ensuring that treatment can be tailored to patients' needs or personal preferences.
The new ear surgery website provides an abundance of information pertaining to ear deformity, hearing loss, and reconstructive options. In addition to microtia, individuals can learn about a common outpatient procedure known as otoplasty, which is used to correct prominent or misshaped ears in adults and children alike. Surgeons at the Ear Surgery Center of Excellence hope that individuals will find the site and learn about the importance of seeking treatment from an expert in facial reconstructive surgery.
The Ear Surgery Center of Excellence is led by Carlo Honrado, MD, FACS, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with expertise in advanced reconstructive ear surgery. The surgical team consists of six additional physicians – three otolaryngologists and three facial plastic surgeons – who specialize in reconstructive and cosmetic ear surgery. The otolaryngologists include Michel Babajanian, MD, FACS; Babak Larian, MD, FACS; and Mani Zadeh, MD, FACS. The facial plastic & reconstructive surgeons include Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS; Guy Massry, MD; and Mehryar (Ray) Taban, MD, FACS.
