While a sophomore in high school, Madelyn suffered damage to her lingual nerve during a procedure to have her wisdom teeth removed. She lost sensation to the right side of her tongue, which made eating and speaking difficult. The damage to Madelyn’s lingual nerve was repaired with Avance® Nerve Graft and AxoGuard® Nerve Protector. She is back to organizing class activities and playing competitive lacrosse.
