Hi there,

If your interested in my story on Microtia, Atresia repair, you’ve come to the right place.

Over the next couple of month I’ll post my story and my expirences when I go the USA to get my right ear canal reconstructed by Dr. Roberson at The Ear Institute in California.

In the menu above this post is link to some small videos I will make along the way. And you can use the menu on the right for navigation.

All the best,

Hi Jakob,

I have been following your blog from Australia, it has been very informative following your surgery journey.

My daughter Is 9 and has right ear microtia. She will be having rib graft surgery this year in Australia. We have met Dr Roberson & are considering the atresia repair but want to involve our daughter in the decision.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but this question was avoided by Dr Roberson. What is the cost of the surgery & how long are you living in the States?

We are trying to save in case she decides to go ahead with the surgery but have been told it Is approx $30,000 by parents in Australia.

Thank you for your time.
