Restoring Confidence with Lifelike Prosthetics

Restoring Confidence with Lifelike Prosthetics

How to begin

Understanding your needs is key to creating an ear prosthesis you can wear with confidence. We invite you and your referring healthcare provider to contact us with questions and to schedule a complimentary initial consultation. Upon request, we can secure a Spanish language interpreter for the consultation.

Questions You May Have

What information is needed from the referring health care provider?

We require a physician’s order before we begin fabrication, but not for the initial appointment. Clinical notes from your physician are helpful and sometimes required for insurance authorizations.

What if my ear was lost to traumatic injury or surgically removed due to disease?

It is important to allow at least six weeks of healing following injury or surgery. We are happy to meet new patients for an initial consultation during healing so that you can learn more about what to expect. Radiation therapy may delay prosthetic treatment.

What if both ears are affected?

One size does not fit all. We take your facial features into account and consider the ear shape of family members. We have developed a systematic approach to determine the appropriate size, location, and shape for bilateral prosthetic ears to ensure a natural appearance. Our system was presented at the Third International Symposium-Bone Conduction Hearing—Craniofacial Osseointegration.
