Right Choice From the minute Dr. Papay walked into the office, we knew we were making the right choice. We were going to let this man cut our sons head open from ear to ear and take his forehead out. That is enough to make me sick just thinking about it, but the confidence Dr. Papay exuded made it seem as easy as removing a hangnail. Nolan 4 days post-op. Some people questioned our choice of the Cleveland Clinic over Rainbow Baby & Childrens. We are so lucky to be able to have these two choices in our backyard, but again, it just felt right and Dr. Papay studied under the man that pioneered the surgery Nolan had. Can't get much better than that! Today, Bill asked me if I had read about the face transplant done at the Cleveland Clinic. When you stop to think about it, that is a truly amazing thing that modern medicine can do. A new face. wow. Turns out our Dr. Papay headed up the team that did the surgery. Guess metopic craniosynostosis is nothin' compared to a FACE TRANSPLANT! Bravo Dr. Papay.
