Providing surgical care for your face, neck, or jaw is a unique challenge, met by the medical profession in an unusual way.
Technology and knowledge have led surgeons to specialise but doing so across two fields is rare. This is the case with our oral & maxillofacial consultants, who are qualified in medicine and dentistry.
Qualifications enhanced by substantial education, training and experience. In treating facial fractures, lacerations, trauma, deformity and in surgical procedures for skin, muscle, bone, or dental requirements.
Facial surgery has a further uncommon requirement, balancing function with appearance. Our face reflects us, for pyschological, social and practical reasons, how we look matters to us.
Having an ability to combine all the above represents many years work by dedicated individuals, yet in a way this is unimportant. The real point is the quality of care created for patients.
Fine treatment and outcome can only happen with sound diagnosis. Scientific advances in imaging technology, microscopy and testing have helped, we use them to the full but maxillofacial experience remains the key.
Patients come to us with complex facial trauma, or with a focused need, such as vascular surgery. The same level of understanding applies to both.
In a complex part of our body, very little stands alone. Taking an holistic view of current implications, the long term future and meeting your personal wishes is the purpose of a maxillofacial specialist.
Having a multi disciplinary team alongside the facial surgery facilities in our London clinic is valuable. The best surgeons in the world can and should discuss cases with other specialists.
Our patients still have the advantage of coordinated treatment, from one leading consultant. They can treat, or rebuild craniofacial hard and soft tissues, the oral mucosa, correct skeletal irregularities, carry out essential grafts.
Along with facial damage, or deformity, jaw correction, such as orthognathic surgery can be at the heart of treatment. Or dealing with cysts, tumours, or lesions which may be causal, or symptomatic.
Facial surgery should not simply “cure” an identified issue. The objective is to create a sound underlying structure, eradicate disease and above all, restore your quality of life.
