Earicles Application for Cost-Free or Reduced Cost Surgery

Earicles is a nonprofit organization that helps children born without ears thrive through education, research, advocacy and cost-free Microtia treatment.

Earicles sponsors surgeries each year to those children (<18 years of age) who have already undergone ear surgical reconstruction that resulted in a poor or failed outcome. While we wish we could help every child and family in need, we are focused on helping those whose only hope for an ear is with a Porous Implant (Medpor) ear surgery because the tissues of the original Microtia ear were destroyed by unsuccessful surgeries.

If you would like to apply, please fill out the application below for consideration. Only fully completed applications will be considered. Applications are accepted year-round. Earicles is a small non-profit entity with limited funding; we do encourage families to look at additional funding resources online.

  • (*please note only children under the age of 18 will be considered)

  • (please note that Earicles is only accepting applications for those children who have already undergone ear surgical reconstruction that resulted in a poor outcome or surgical failure.)

  • Your child’s previous microtia ear reconstruction surgeon contact information:

  • In order to complete your application, you must email photos of your child to earicles@lewinmd.com, including a front view, right and left side views, and a close up of the failed ear. Please include both the parents’ and the child’s name in the email, or we will not be able to process your application.
