At the Royal Free Hospital we provide a full range of services for congenital facial paralysis and congenital ear reconstruction. We have all the ancillary services in place: psycological expertise, speech therapy, physiotherapy and a dedicated paediatric aneasthetic service. Dr. AO Grobbelaar participates in the MDT activity for congenital and syndromic facial paralysis at Great Ormand Street Hospital for Sick Children. All surgery for facial paralysis is performed at the Royal Free Hospital. We have two ear reconstruction surgeons (Walid Sabbagh and Greg O'Toole) who work in the IUK ear reconstruction Network along with Neil Bulstrode of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
