Award-winning oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Parvaz Mizrahi, was a guest expert on the hit CBS TV show, “The Doctors” on September 17. During the segment, she was featured offering the victim of a brutal gas station attack, Jessica Byrnes, life-changing oral surgery to reverse the damage she sustained. —
An 18-year-old Louisiana teen, Jessica Byrnes’ entire life changed when she and her boyfriend, Jared, made a routine stop at a local gas station. While Jared went inside to pay for the gas, a group of men began making sexually suggestive comments toward Jessica. When Jared returned and told the men to leave her alone, they attacked him. He was eventually able to break free and get back inside the car, at which point one of the men threw a brass pipe through the open passenger door window, hitting Jessica directly in the face and knocking out eight of her teeth.
When Dr. Mizrahi met with Jessica and examined her mouth, it was immediately apparent that the damage to her gums, teeth, and jaw was severe. She suffered missing teeth, fractured teeth, exposed nerves, spasms of her facial muscles, and contusion of her TMJs. In addition, Dr. Mizrahi found extensive microfractures in the underlying bone, making this an exceptionally challenging case.
“There is no doubt that the damage Jessica has sustained is severe,” comments Dr. Mizrahi. “However, there is hope. We can absolutely give her back the smile these men took away.”
Working alongside cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, Dr. Mizrahi will be treating Jessica free of charge to restore the straight and healthy smile she had before this brutal attack. Dr. Mizrahi will also be returning to “The Doctors” in the following months to reveal the results of Jessica’s surgeries, unveiling her beautiful and inspiring transformation.
Dr. Mizrahi graduated with honors from the esteemed University of California, Los Angeles School of Dentistry. From there, she established her private practice in the heart of Beverly Hills, where she provides the most advanced oral and maxillofacial surgery techniques available. Since then, Dr. Mizrahi has devoted her career to promoting oral health and helping her patients achieve the beautiful, functioning smiles they deserve. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Mizrahi specializes in implant placement, TMJ treatment and traumatic maxillofacial surgeries.
