Brody's Right "Big Boy" Ear

Recent site activity

Brody Henke

        Brody was born with  bilateral microtia atresia (small ears and no canals). When he was 2 weeks old, he was fitted for a BAHA (bone anchored hearing aid) this allows him to hear. Without the BAHA, Brody has a moderate-severe hearing loss.
         Brody's first surgery took place on April 4th 2013 in Palo Alto, CA. The first surgery opened his left ear canal and to create an eardrum. Following this surgery, Brody had a second surgery to open his right ear canal on June 20th. This surgery went well, his middle bones were not connected properly so the Doctor placed a prosthesis connecting his stapies and his eardrum. On September 5th Brody had his 3rd surgery and received his first 'Big Boy Ear'!!!  This procedure is called"medpor" which is the outer ear construction of his left ear. January 2014 he had his right "medpor" ear surgery.  We traveled back out to California in Febuary for an additional surgery as some of the skin grafts on his right medpor ear, were not healing properly. Brody's ears are doing very well! They are still healing as it takes up to a year to heal completely.
