Facial Paralysis Specialists

Facial paralysis affects children and adults for multiple reasons. While some people regain movement with no treatment, recovery may not be complete. Duke’s team of facial paralysis specialists evaluate your condition to determine the type and severity, and recommend a personalized treatment plan. Our goals are to restore symmetry and movement to your face and to improve your quality of life.


Additional Treatments for Children

We also provide consultation and follow-up care for a range of ENT surgeries, which typically take place at Duke Ambulatory Surgery Center, Duke University Hospital, or Duke Regional Hospital.
