Мaxillofacial surgeons specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, traumatic injuries, external deformities and functional disorders of the bones and soft tissues of the oral cavity and the neck and facial area. With most medical issues involving the oral cavity, face and neck other doctors are in charge of treating the patient, but there are a number of conditions that require the skills of a maxillofacial surgeon.
At GMS Hospital, we have highly trained and experienced maxillofacial surgeons who have thoroughly mastered all traditional and advanced techniques in facial reconstructive surgery for the treatment of traumatic injuries, anomalies and deformation of maxillofacial tissues.
The maxillofacial surgeon is the expert to call when patients have suffered fractures, fissures, or other injuries to the facial bones, and for the treatment of congenital defects, inflammation, tumors and other pathological conditions of the face and neck. This specialist not only restores lost functionality, but also rebuilds the patient's appearance. Modern surgical methods and technologies make it possible to correct even the most complex post-traumatic defects and deformities through the reconstructing of the human face.
You should consult a maxillofacial surgeon if you experience any of the following:
Other medical specialists such as dentists and otorhinolaryngologists will often refer a patient to a maxillofacial surgeon if they discover a problem that falls within the area of professional expertise of this particular doctor. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, sign up for a consultation with a maxillofacial surgeon at GMS Hospital by phone or online.
Maxillofacial surgeons diagnose and treat the following conditions:
GMS Hospital has all the necessary equipment and expertise for both conservative and surgical treatment of most pathologies of the face and neck. Our maxillofacial surgeons use advanced low-impact methods and techniques, ensuring the best clinical and aesthetic outcomes and significantly reducing recovery time.
Maxillofacial surgeons use a complete array of diagnostic equipment, including:
The doctor will also prescribe a series of laboratory tests.
An appointment with a maxillofacial surgeon begins with the patient’s medical history and current symptoms and complaints. The doctor will perform an initial examination and prescribe further tests and analyses to obtain the most complete picture of the patient’s medical condition. Based on the results, the doctor will decide whether surgery is required.
Some pathologies, for example cleft lip and cleft palate, require more than one operation. If nearby organs and systems are affected, other specialists (otolaryngologist, neurosurgeon, etc.) will also participate in the examination of the patient and preparation of a treatment plan.
At GMS Hospital, surgeons perform almost the full range of operations for treatment of pathological conditions of the neck and facial area. Our maxillofacial surgeons successfully perform the following types of procedures:
The use of modern low-impact techniques minimizes operational trauma while delivering the best clinical and aesthetic results. Maxillofacial surgeons fully reconstruct and correct congenital or acquired defects of the facial and cervical area. Following the operation, patients have virtually no noticeable marks or scars.
After the test results are received, the doctor will design an individual course of treatment. Conditions that do not require immediate surgery, such as birth defects, are treated in stages, with the participation of other medical specialists if necessary. If surgery is indicated, the doctor will order all preoperative procedures, and agree on the date of the operation together with the patient.
If injuries to the face and cervical area require urgent surgical intervention, the patient will be operated on as quickly as within one hour. In this case, the patient is immediately admitted to GMS Hospital and emergency preoperative workup is started.
