Microtia Ear Surgery Guide
Microtia is a common birth defect in which both the outer and middle ear does not fully develop. Surgery can correct microtia in cases ranging from an ear that is only slightly smaller than normal with an ear canal to only a peanut-like trace of an external ear and an absence of an ear canal and eardrum.
Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is an elite microtia repair specialist that understands the emotional pain and hearing loss that accompany microtia, especially in a child. We want parents to have a full understanding of the options available to them as well as be well informed on the microtia condition itself. Dr. Jones believes that the time tested and proven sculpted rib graft technique is the best solution. It utilizes a patient’s own natural tissue, making it less susceptible to infection or rejection than an artificial ear.
