Dr. Bonilla

Dr. Bonilla Has Nearly 28 Years of Experience as a Pediatric Microtia Surgeon

Dr. Bonilla has dedicated his entire career of over 28 years to exclusively taking care of thousands of children born with microtia and atresia. His unique surgical techniques and caring approach have led to global recognition as the leading pediatric microtia surgeon who utilizes children's own natural cartilage.

What Is Microtia?

Microtia is a congenital ear deformity that causes small and improperly formed ears. Because of the moderate to severe conductive hearing loss, some speech delay may occur in children. The great news is that a highly-skilled surgeon like Dr. Bonilla can help children with microtia by reconstructing their ears and improving their hearing loss so that they may lead full, healthy lives.

Dr. Bonilla's Passion Has Always Been Helping Children With Microtia!

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 plastic polyethylene alternative, requires shorter surgery times, less anesthesia, and will not break since it uses living tissue. Other examples of Dr. Bonilla's innovative methods include contact laser technology, which minimizes discomfort.

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 Microtia - Congenital Ear Deformity Institute, we can make arrangements with most insurance companies to make your child's treatment as affordable as possible.
