Welcome to the Facial Paralysis and Bell’s Palsy Foundation

The Facial Paralysis & Bell’s Palsy Foundation was founded in 2008 by Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, with the desire to provide a network of information, education and support to persons of all ages who are suffering from Bell’s Palsy and permanent facial paralysis.

We are dedicated to support ongoing research within the medical community to find and advance new and improved treatments for facial paralysis. We also seek to educate medical professionals on the latest developments within the facial paralysis community .

Please feel free to contact us if you or a loved one are dealing with facial paralysis issues. We desire to extend to you the knowledge that you are not alone in your condition, and the hope that there are treatments available to you. Thank you for visiting our website.
