The facial plastic surgery (oculoplastic) experts at the University of Minnesota are board certified eye doctors (ophthalmologists). They have special training in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery around the eye. Doctors perform ptosis surgery by putting your child to sleep, or they can use local numbing with something to calm your child. We offer the latest surgical treatments for all types of ptosis.
Many physicians at the University of Minnesota participate in clinical trials. Patients treated here have access to more clinical trials than anywhere else in Minnesota. Our discoveries often become the standard of care around the world. Ask your doctor about a clinical trial for ptosis.
