Matthew Q. Miller, MD
Director of UNC Facial Nerve Center
Peripheral nerve surgery is inherently unpredictable. In this lecture, Dr. Miller will review how monopolar and bipolar intraoperative nerve stimulation can make facial nerve surgery more predictable. He will dive deeper into patient selection and surgical techniques for facial reanimation procedures introduced in Part I. Dr. Miller will discuss how to optimize outcomes in selective denervation (aka neurolysis), depressor anguli oris excision, free gracilis muscle transfer, cross-face nerve graft, and 5-7 nerve transfer.
