Comes to the office today for Botox injections. He has a very significant and rather severe left-sided hemifacial spasm.
Informed consent was obtained from the patient. Under sterile conditions, he received a total of 78.75 units of Botox. Location and dosages of injections are documented on his injection form. He tolerated these well. No complications were noted. He will follow up in 3 months when further injections are needed. He is to call the office in 2 weeks and let us know how well he is doing. If at that time he needs a touchup of the injections, we certainly will proceed from there.
I did tell the patient that the first time someone is injected, it is somewhat difficult to know the exact dose. We need to try a dose-response curve with him with the injections. Overall we should be able to get somewhere in the range of 90% relief of the hemifacial spasm.
