Nosebleed mystery leads to successful face surgery for St. Johns teen


Noah Milum’s ordeal started with nosebleeds. Now 15, Noah was a seventh grader at Switzerland Point Middle School in northern St. Johns County when the nosebleeds began. For well over a year, he suffered from frequent nosebleeds… Neurovascular surgeon Ricardo Hanel from the Mayo Clinic would block the blood vessels feeding the tumor, reducing Noah’s blood loss during surgery. Plastic and craniofacial surgeon Brett Snyder of Nemours Children’s Clinic had experience cutting facial bone and doing cosmetic surgery. Philipp Aldana, a pediatric neurosurgeon with the University of Florida-Jacksonville, agreed to be available in case the tumor had encroached on Noah’s brain, which it turned out hadn’t happened.
