Amber Rose's farm accident

Feb. 19, 2019


Seven-year-old Amber Rose's playtime on the farm turned tragic when a 600-pound tractor tire and rim toppled on her. In a 15-hour surgery, Uldis Bite, M.D., Mayo Clinic craniofacial and pediatric plastic surgeon at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota, operated on Amber Rose to help rebuild her nose and realign her eyes, while Elizabeth A. Bradley, M.D., Mayo Clinic ophthalmologist, operated on her damaged eye socket. Other Mayo specialists restored her ability to smile and her jaw's flexibility and alignment, and preserved her sinus function.
