What Are Trauma Conditions?
Trauma to the ears, nose, and throat often occurs following a serious injury, such as a car accident, severe burn, or sports injury. Emergency room physicians are trained to quickly control bleeding and prevent any additional damage, but most patients require follow-up treatment with a trauma specialist to regain full use of the ears, nose, and throat following a traumatic event.
Benefits of Treatment for Trauma Conditions
Trauma is a critical medical condition that requires immediate medical care. Traumatic injuries can be fatal without adequate and fast medical attention from a skilled emergency room staff that can quickly control excessive bleeding and restore the injured patient’s ability to breathe. Preserving the life of an injured patient is the primary goal of a rapid medical response team such as an emergency room staff, but the sustained injuries could affect vital bodily functions and undermine the patient’s quality of life. Follow-up treatments and reconstructive surgery with Dr. Taghizadeh are designed to restore maximal use to the patient’s injured ear, nose, or throat.

Dr. Taghizadeh is a highly skilled facial plastic surgeon and ENT specialist who uses his expertise to treat patients who’ve suffered traumatic injuries to the face, eyes, or nose. Trauma treatments can improve upon the emergency room care an injured patient received and restore the patient’s appearance and the injured area’s function. Dr. Taghizadeh treats the following trauma conditions:
Facial Bone Fracture
A facial bone fracture is defined as a break or crack in one or more of the facial bones. These fractures are categorized by the type of bone that’s affected. The main categories of facial fractures include:
- Orbital Fractures: Fractures of the eye socket bone
- Nasoorbitoethmoid Complex Fractures: Fractures of the complex structure of the frontal and ethmoid sinuses.
- Maxillary fractures: Fractures of the upper jaw
- Mandible fractures: Fractures of the lower jaw
Facial bone fractures can be singular or compound in nature. For instance, a patient can suffer a single facial fracture from a broken nose, and a patient can sustain a combination of different facial fractures in a traumatic accident or collision.
Orbital Floor Reconstruction
Intense, moderate, and even low levels of velocity can cause trauma and fracture or displace the orbital floor. These fractures often require surgical reconstruction because the displacement of the orbital floor can result in defects, severe pain, double vision, and even loss of sensation to the orbital nerve. Orbital floor reconstruction is a surgical procedure that restores the orbital floor to its pre-injured structure and function. Facial trauma can be disfiguring, which can pose not only physical but also psychological challenges for the injured person. This is why facial reconstructive procedures such as orbital floor reconstruction aim to restore the aesthetic appearance and physiological function of the injured area.
Nasal fractures are more commonly known as a broken nose, and this type of fracture involves a break in the cartilage or bone found in the nasal bridge or sidewalls and the septum. The nasal bones are surprisingly some of the most fragile facial bones, and nasal fracture is the most common type of facial injury that physicians such as Dr. Taghizadeh treat. Nasal fractures are often the result of physical trauma to the face. Symptoms of a nasal fracture can range from swelling, bruising, and pain to difficulty breathing, bleeding through the nose, and nasal deformity.
