Matthew Q. Miller, MD
Director of UNC Facial Nerve Center
Dr. Miller will review how monopolar nerve stimulation can facilitate safe nerve dissection in common facial plastic and head and neck procedures such as parotidectomy, facial nerve exploration, and deep plane facelift. He will review common facial reanimation procedures such as 5-7 nerve transfer, gracilis free tissue transfer, cross face nerve graft, and selective denervation (aka selective neurolysis). Dr. Miller will discuss the benefits of monopolar and bipolar nerve stimulation for each of these procedures.
