Facial Motion Disorders Program Conditions We Treat

We evaluate and treat a wide variety of facial motion disorders. Many of the facial motion disorders we treat occur as part of a syndrome, such as hemifacial microsomia, CHARGE syndrome, Poland syndrome or 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

  • Congenital facial nerve palsies (paralysis) and facial paresis (partial paralysis)
  • Facial spasm (synkinesis, dyskinesis)
  • Acquired facial palsies or weakness from pediatric stroke, trauma or tumor resection
  • Moebius syndrome (a rare congenital neurological disorder characterized by facial paralysis and the inability to move the eyes from side to side)
  • Patients with absent or abnormal facial motion after Bell’s palsy (a form of facial paralysis)
