2017 was quite a year, wasn’t it? So many unexpected things happened, both good and bad. If you expectantly experienced facial paralysis this can ignite a fear in you. The fear of the unknown related to your unexpected facial paralysis can cause you to experience a strong emotion.
At New York Facial Paralysis, we treat patients who are suffering from the effects of Bell’s Palsy. After examining each patient, and determining how it is being presented, we will determine a plan for treatment. Most plans involve high doses of steroids and antiviral medications
Many would argue that fear is the most powerful emotion. We tend to agree in many ways. During the month of October it seems like everywhere you turn, someone is trying to scare you with a haunted house, scary lawn décor, terrifying costumes and tricks (not treats) around every corner.

At New York Facial Paralysis, we treat patients with Ramsey Hunt Syndrome. This is a condition induced by infection of the geniculate ganglion of the facial nerve from the herpes zoster virus. The same virus that is responsible for chicken pox, which can resurface as a shingles rash, causes it. It can result in a painful rash in your ear and affect your facial nerve.
