About the clinic

UW Health’s facial nerve clinic evaluates and manages both adult and pediatric patients with chronic facial paralysis.

When the facial nerves are injured, several conditions may result including:

  • Facial paralysis or weakness results from on imperfect nerve signal to the facial muscles, causing facial drooping or loss of expression.

  • Synkinesis, which is unwanted movement of facial muscles, occurs when you only have partial recovery of the facial nerve.

  • Facial tightness results from odd nerve signal following nerve regrowth, which can impair movement of certain parts of the face.
