Welcoming Domestic & International Patients

We strive to provide the most natural living ear reconstruction possible and to treat each patient with kindness and respect.

About Our Practice

Located in Boise, ID, our practice serves as both a regional and international hub for ear reconstruction. Whether a patient's concerns are something they were born with or the result of an illness or accident, we can create a natural, aesthetic ear that will last for years to come. 

Patients can take advantage of either MEDPOR™ or a Rib Cartilage framework made of their own tissue to lay the foundations for their ear. Incisions are placed discreetly so that scars heal subtly and naturally. If possible, the ear canal can be reconstructed (CANALPLASTY), or a bone anchored hearing aid (BAHA, Ponto Pro, or BONEBRIDGE) can be implanted at the same time as the external ear. If you are concerned about financing treatment, our experienced staff can assist patients and parents with medical insurance pre-certification and payment.


About Dr. Griffiths

As an ear reconstruction surgeonDr. Russell Griffiths works with his team to create or rebuild ears for local, national, and international patients. He provides surgery for patients with congenital malformations such as microtia and anotia, as well as those who have suffered from trauma or cancer. If you are dissatisfied with the results of a previous treatment, we also perform secondary reconstruction surgery to revise your outcome.
