BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

Some children are born with ears that protrude further from the scalp than normal. Otoplasty combines procedures that re-creates absent folds that are normally in ears, reduces the amount of show of the ears by setting them back, and returns the ear to a more anatomically normal position. This is accomplished through an incision behind the ear and stitches are used to hold the cartilage in a new position. This is done as an outpatient procedure.
