Treatment Options

At Aurora, we’ll work with you on a personalized fibrous dysplasia treatment plan to meet your needs. If you’re not having symptoms, your doctor might just keep a close eye on your condition. If you have symptoms, we can help ease chronic pain, remove scar tissue and mend fractures and facial deformities.

If fibrous dysplasia is damaging your vision or your nerves, surgeons can reduce the pressure on your optic nerve or replace a damaged bone with healthy bone grafted from another part of your body.

If the condition is affecting your skull, we can treat you using a minimally invasive procedure called the Expanded Endonasal Approach (EEA) It lets doctors insert a thin, lighted tube through your nose to safely remove scar-like fibrous tissue. It doesn’t require incisions, so you’ll have a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery and no risk of scars.
