Help Brandon Open His Mouth!

A car wreck left my jaw out of alignment with severe damage to my Temporal Mandibular Joints which allow your Jaw to open and close. The joints sit in front of your ears on the side of your face. I am battling jaw pain constantly and eating is quite hard due to not being able to open my mouth, I also deal with regular migraines .

Several Drs told me they could not treat my condition and referred me to Dr. Mark Piper, an oral/facial surgeon who is World renowned for his unique treatment for my condition.  I visited Dr. Piper for a day of diagnosis via MRI, CT Scans, and Nerve Blocks. Dr. Piper told me the damage was extensive and that surgery was my only real option. The operation he does is unique and has a long track record of success with over 99% of his outcomes are positive/successful.

Because Dr. Piper is out of my insurance network my Insurance will pay very little of the cost. Costs are high but having had a previous surgery and having had it fail I do not want to repeat that process. $60,000 is the cost of the operation, I will also need to stay in St. Petersburg Florida for around three weeks before and after the surgery.

Any help that you can give will be appreciated . Thank you and be blessed.

-Bilateral disk removal and replacement with Fatgraft with left redo and removal of wisdom teeth.
