Although many cases of facial paralysis are curable, there’s a subset that will need intervention down the road. For those patients, we categorize them as early or late, and that really has to do with the time from which that paralysis set in. So for example, if a paralysis has been ongoing for a year or more, we may be out of the early period and entering a later phase. That has a large bearing on what type of treatments that we’re going to offer that particular patient. The longer you wait, the more surgery is going to be an option for you.
