The study comprised 94 patients with postoperative complications after surgical treatment of benign tumors of the parotid salivary gland.

A series of exercises is performed every hour and a half, the session duration is twenty minutes, the course is 14 days. The exercises are performed by the patient in front of the mirror, gently and at a slow pace. The duration of the recovery period of motor function of the facial muscles on the affected side was 31.2±19.6 days, with the amplitude of the M-response 1.45±0.28 mV, the duration of the M-response 8.04±0.27 ms and the latent time during EMG 3.18±0.86 ms. Conclusion. The combined treatment, which included surgical and conservative treatment complex with methods of acupuncture, hirudotherapy and physiotherapy, was significantly more effective (p<0.05) in terms of the severity of paresis of facial muscles than in the control group.
