WHY IT MATTERS
The Concept of Charitable Surgery
Once a recipient of otoplasty surgery himself, Dr. Steven Mobley understands firsthand what a life-changing experience otoplasty can be for a young child. The Mobley Foundation for Charitable Surgery was built on Dr. Mobley’s compassion youth who experience bullying because of the way they were born, but do not have the opportunity for corrective otoplasty surgery. The Mobley Foundation seeks to help as many children as possible live happy, confident lives. Prospective patients must meet the following requirements in order to be eligible for charitable otoplasty surgery:
- Documented history of having been bullied or teased because their appearance (verified by teacher, counselor or school administrator) Dr. Mobley performs the surgery at no charge and accept no remuneration for running the foundation. Surgical facility and anesthesia fees still apply, and these are paid for by the foundation.
- Patient must be between the ages of 6 and 18.
- Have met official state guidelines for low income as defined by having qualified for free or reduced-fee school lunches within the public school system.
Giving Back to Utah.
One of the surgeries funded by the The Mobley MD Foundation is otoplasty (ear pinning). Dr. Mobley will provide otoplasty surgery to low-income school-aged children who are victims of bullying and who otherwise could not afford this operation. Otoplasty is frequently considered a cosmetic operation. However, for many children it can be so much more than just cosmetic. Many studies have shown that children with this condition rate themselves lower in physical appearance, have concentration anxiety, and report significantly more teasing than their peers. This is just one facet of the surgeries The Mobley MD Foundation helps make accessible to Utah families.
Helping build confidence.
One study found a 91% improvement in quality of life for those children who had undergone otoplasty. The impact of this procedure on someone’s life can be miraculous. Statistics and studies aside, Dr. Mobley can speak personally on this issue. He was born with rather prominent ears and was subjected to teasing throughout his grade-school years. After his freshman year in college, he underwent otoplasty and experienced the wonderful self esteem benefits first-hand. Dr. Mobely\\\’s vision is that The Mobley Foundation for Charitable Surgery will make this positive life-change accessible to children who, until now, simply did not have that option in their live
