Posted on 11/8/2021 by Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery
What is Craniofacial Surgery?Craniofacial surgery describes various surgical procedures done to correct medical issues around the neck, face, skull, and head. It is often done to young patients with the consent of their parents or guardians.

The Advantages of Craniofacial Surgery

Craniofacial surgery aims to reconstruct damaged tissues and bones to improve disfigured areas around the head and face. When we perform craniofacial surgery on children at the early stages of their development, it is possible to minimize anomalies that would affect their growth and development.

Who Can Benefit From Craniofacial Surgery?

There are two types of patients who can benefit from craniofacial surgery. The first patients are the ones who were born with tissue, muscle, and bone abnormalities around the face and skull. Such patients are often said to have congenital abnormalities.

The second types of patients who can benefit from craniofacial surgery are the one who develops face and skull issue later in life. Such issues may arise as a result of trauma or diseases, leading to the patient acquiring these abnormalities.

What Does Craniofacial Surgery Treat?

Craniofacial surgery can help to correct medical issues of patients with cleft palate and cleft lip. The surgery can also treat acquired and congenital conditions such as jaw deformities, jaw, and facial tumors. It also remedies conditions such as craniofacial trauma, Pierre Robin Syndrome, craniosynostosis, Apert's Syndrome, Crouzon Syndrome, and Teacher Collins Syndrome.

Various medical professionals often perform craniofacial surgery. They include neurosurgeons and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Patients who require craniofacial surgery often look down upon themselves because they tend to think that their condition is permanent.

Our professionals have handled numerous craniofacial surgeries, and their success rate is beyond the roof. Many patients remain impressed by what we do, which is why they keep on referring other patients to our office. Don't hesitate to contact us to help you deal with face, head, neck, and skull issues.
