There is no known cause for microtia, and it can affect children on either one or both ears (bilateral microtia). Children with microtia experience varying degrees of hearing loss due to the underdeveloped or missing outer and middle ear regions.

Dr. Mitchell Stotland, Division Chief of Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery, leads Sidra Medicine’s world-class microtia reconstruction program. The program also covers children with the associated condition of hemifacial microsomia, including with interventions to augment and/or lengthen the undergrown tissues and bones of the face. The multidisciplinary medical/surgical team is supported by Sidra Medicine’s Allied Health services for all forms of craniofacial disorders.
