List of Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery Doctors
Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery
Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery is divided into paediatric and adult Maxillo-facial surgery. Paediatric cases mostly revolve around the treatment of congenital anomalies of the craniofacial skeleton and soft tissues, such as cleft lip and palate, craniosynostosis, and paediatric fractures. Adult craniofacial surgery deals mostly with fractures (of mandible, maxilla, zygoma, frontal and naso-ethmoidal area) and secondary surgeries (such as orbital reconstruction) along with orthognathic surgery. Craniofacial surgery is an important part of all plastic surgery training programs, further training and subspecialisation is obtained via a craniofacial fellowship. Craniofacial surgery is also practiced by Maxillo-Facial surgeons.
