There are many nerves in our face that are responsible for both movement and feeling. Often as a result of previous surgery, cancer, accident or birth defect these nerves do not work properly. Depending on the situation involved, Dr. Monasebian may be able to help improve the function of the nerve. Dr. Monasebian has successfully restored form and function to the Facial Nerve and branches of the Trigeminal Nerve including the orbital nerve, the maxillary nerve and the mandibular nerve. These nerves provide sensation and feeling to the face. Dr. Monasebian also repairs the lingual nerve. The lingual nerve provides feeling and sensation and taste for the tongue.
