As we are very aware, accidents do happen in the pediatric population. What often adds to the anxiety and frustration of the parent is a long and stressful wait in the hospital emergency room. With Dr. Monasebian’s “Pedi-Stitch” program, we aim to alleviate that.
As a father himself, Dr. Monasebian clearly understands what parents go through. Your child will be seen emergently and worked into our schedule as soon as possible.
Dr. Monasebian can also see your child at nights and weekends in any of the local, New York City emergency rooms that he covers. The same attention to detail afforded to his cosmetic patients is performed on your child to optimize the outcome.
Dr. Monasebian also performs pediatric surgery as a result of birth defects, trauma or cosmetic purposes and includes cleft lip and palate, craniosynostosis, ear and nose problems, birth marks, burns and other traumatic injuries and more. Surgeons can work with families from before birth and into adulthood. Dr. Monasebian is also a member of the American Association of Pediatric Plastic Surgeons.
Dr. Monasebian and Park Avenue Plastic Surgery are proud to have been using the Earwell™ Infant Ear Correction Molding System for many years with predictable and excellent results. The Earwell™ system painlessly reshapes the ears and brings them closer to the head as well as improving the shape of the ear to make it more natural. Placing the Earwell™ System can be done during an office visit and takes only a few minutes. The system is comprised of four components which create a mold that conforms the ears into a natural shape and growth pattern. The Earwell™ Infant Ear Correction System is held in place with specialized adhesive retention strips which will be monitored and replaced periodically over the next few weeks. In most cases, the entire process is completed within four to six weeks and no other treatment is necessary. The Earwell™ Infant Ear Correction System is consistently successful, resulting in beautifully shaped ears and involving no surgery, no incisions, and no recovery time. We are also pleased to say that Dr. Monasebian was a previously recognized as an “EarWell Physician of the Month” this past year attesting to his skill and number of children treated.
