Ear reconstruction team
The ear reconstruction consultant works with several other skilled, dedicated team members. These include an associate specialist who assists in harvesting the cartilage and a physician’s assistant who ensures the consultant is able to deliver care smoothly throughout the patient journey. The ear reconstruction service also has a dedicated secretary giving the service a more personal touch.
There are also specialist theatre, dressing and clinic nurses who are skilled in caring for young people once they have been given their new ear. The hospital has a state-of-the-art medical photography department allowing 3D photography of the ear, which is becoming more important for measuring outcomes.
Future patients have a chance to meet another person who has undergone the procedure creating a patient support group and allowing families to share their experiences.
