Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a medical field that encompasses a wide range of surgical methods for the treatment of a wide range of diseases, injuries and disorders of the soft tissues and bones of the face, jaws, head and neck. We perform almost all types of maxillofacial operations at GMS Hospital. Our surgeons use advanced equipment and the latest microsurgical technologies and techniques, which ensures the best clinical and aesthetic results.
The field of oral and maxillofacial surgery includes a wide range of procedures aimed at treating ailments such as inflammation of hard and soft tissues of the head and neck, traumatic facial lesions and their complications, tumor processes, and congenital disorders. It's one of the most difficult fields of surgery, because many complex structures - various sinuses, glands, and more than 20 tissue spaces -- are located in a relatively small area.
This is why the highest demands are placed on maxillofacial surgeons with respect to professional training and experience. After all, successful treatment not only means the full restoration of functionality, but also ensuring minimal operational trauma and a highly aesthetic outcome.
Injuries to the face and jaw, as well as congenital and acquired disorders in this area, can pose serious, sometimes even fatal health risks to the patient. Thanks to modern maxillofacial surgery techniques, physicians can quickly treat most pathologies of the head and neck. An operation is often the only way to eliminate the source of excruciating pain, correct speech and swallowing impairment, and remove cosmetic imperfections.
After an injury, even a severe one, a successful operation can correct facial deformities and restore the patient's appearance. Besides traumatic injuries and congenital abnormalities, maxillofacial surgeons also treat dysfunction of the salivary glands, diseases of the temporomandibular joint, and purulent and malignant processes, and also remove foreign objects from maxillary sinuses; that is, conditions that cannot be effectively treated using conservative methods.
The surgeons at GMS Hospital's Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center have extensive practical experience treating traumatic injuries and other pathologies of the face and neck. They perform a wide range of operations, using the safest, most advanced local or general anesthesia. Our operating rooms are fully equipped with the latest microsurgery technology, enabling our specialists to achieve the best possible therapeutic and aesthetic results. The innovative surgical techniques used at our clinic have been developed and tested at leading European clinics, and are trusted by top medical centers worldwide.
Operations performed at our clinic include corrections to the shape of the nose and ears, treatment of the consequences of physical injuries to the facial area including various kinds of burns, and eradication of congenital defects. Surgical procedures are complemented by individually developed rehabilitation programs. We make every effort to ensure that your experience is positive; each patient can be assured of personalized treatment, tactfulness on the part of our staff, and of course, full confidentiality. The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center works around the clock. You can sign up for a consultation with a specialist at a time that's convenient for you, by phone or on our website.
At GMS Hospital's Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center, we perform a full range of operations for the treatment of traumatic injuries and pathologies of the head and neck, including:
Eliminating scars and other traces of injuries, including burns of various degrees of severity, restoration of facial symmetry - these are only some of the surgical procedures performed by our specialists. The scale and method of the surgical intervention depend on the patient's specific ailment, and are chosen by the doctor following a comprehensive examination. Operations are carried out as inpatient and outpatient procedures, and are sometimes performed the same day that the patient arrives at GMS Hospital.
A multidisciplinary approach and the use of minimally invasive methods and techniques allow us to achieve the best clinical and cosmetic results, with the fastest possible recovery. Innovative treatment approaches, quick rehabilitation, and the full restoration of facial functions and aesthetics are the main advantages of surgery at GMS Hospital.
I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.
Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
