Facial Nerve Clinic

The Michigan Medicine Facial Nerve Clinic, located inside the Kellogg Eye Center, offers fully integrated multidisciplinary care for patients with facial nerve disorders. Our team sees patients with a range of conditions, including:

  • Facial paralysis

  • Facial nerve synkinesis (uncoordinated or unintentional facial movements)
  • Eyelid malposition
  • Exposure keratopathy related to facial nerve disorders

The facial nerve and facial muscles impact everyday functions, including eating, speaking, smiling, and blinking or closing the eyes. Patients often need to see several specialists from different medical services. Our clinic brings together numerous specialties in one location to streamline treatment as much as possible. Specialists work together with one other as well as with referring physicians to create customized treatment plans for each patient. Read more about the clinic and our team.
