Leader in Non-Surgical Infant Ear Correction
It is not uncommon for children to be born with misshapen ears. Some of these cases correct themselves without medical intervention, but many do not. Traditionally, a child with such an ear defect would have to either live with the abnormality or undergo surgery to correct it.
In the 1980s, while treating cleft deformities through molding, Dr. Byrd recognized the malleability of the infant ear. This led him to develop the EarWell™ Infant Ear Correction System, a non-surgical solution for correcting misshapen ears. With it, doctors can correct more than 90% of ear irregularities in infants without surgery. If treated early, the system has been shown to achieve good to excellent results in more than 93% of infants.
