I would highly recommend emailing Dr. Berenstein (and he can consult with Dr. Waner) about possible options for you daughter. Dr. Berenstein is able to monitor the facial nerve during surgery. Dr. Waner travels to Germany 3 or 4 times per year, so it might be possible to see him in person for another opinion. If you need help, please let me know.
