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.

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.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you every success in your chosen profession and GMS does get global worldwide recognition as an intuition of repute.
Best of luck
Anthony and Merle Step
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.
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.
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.
Our specialists will contact you
