Facial Nerve


Our Facial Nerve Specialists work uniquely with functions that allow for human connection. The ability to speak, hear, eat, smile, and express emotion are essential aspects of what allows people to connect with one another. Additionally, our faces are how we interface with the world and a defining feature of our individuality. Our Facial Nerve Specialists feel privileged to help patients regain or improve these aspects of their lives and it is for this reason they are here to partner with you.
