Jon-Paul Pepper, MD, facial plastic surgeon, discusses the world-class treatment for facial nerve dysfunction and facial paralysis at Stanford Health Care. He provides hope for improvement for facial nerve damage and discusses how our doctors and staff are with you, every step of the way.
He and his patient, Jessica, also discuss the new dual-nerve transfer surgery. Jessica underwent this treatment after treating an acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma), to restore her facial nerve function.
Jessica also worked with the entire facial nerve team, including speech pathologists and physical therapists, to give her tools to help restore what was lost. This therapy has helped her recovery and gives her hope.
