Dr. Arturo Bonilla Is The World's Only Exclusive Pediatric Microtia Surgeon

Dr. Bonilla has dedicated his entire career of over 26 years to exclusively taking care of children born with microtia and atresia. His stellar surgery and personal care have led to global recognition as the leading pediatric microtia surgeon who utilizes children's own natural cartilage.

What Exactly Is Microtia?

Microtia is a congenital ear deformity that causes small and improperly formed ears. It can lead to partial hearing loss, total deafness, and speech impediments in children. The great news is that a highly-skilled surgeon like Dr. Bonilla can help children with microtia repair their deformities and lead full, healthy lives. 





Dr. Bonilla has developed special techniques that have resulted in excellent outcomes for children with microtia and atresia.

Dr. Bonilla Always Goes Above and Beyond

Dr. Bonilla's advanced technology and techniques are why so many parents pick him for their children's life-changing treatment. His natural cartilage method, in comparison to the Medpor plastic polyethylene alternative, requires shorter surgery times, less anesthesia, and will not break since it uses living tissue. Other examples of Dr. Bonilla's top-notch methods include contact laser technology, which minimizes nearly all discomfort, and 3-D bioprinting of cartilage cells, which is a new evolution in microtia treatment.

We know that parents may feel undue guilt when their child has microtia. This diagnosis is by no means your fault, and you can feel comfort in knowing that we can help. In addition to our technological advancements aiding us in providing elite care, they also help keep costs down. At the Pediatric Microtia Institute, we also make arrangements with most insurance companies to make your child's treatment as affordable as possible. For compassionate, world-class care from a physician who prioritizes you and your child's well-being at all times, call or contact us today.
