Maxillofacial Surgery


Maxillofacial surgery is a specialty of surgery/dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaw, face and neck. The scope of this specialty is extensive. This includes:

  • Dentoalveolar Surgery (removal of impacted and buried teeth, cysts, etc.)
  • Orthognathic surgery (for the correction of facial deformities)
  • Facial Trauma surgery (repair of fractured facial bones)
  • Head and neck cancer surgery (removal of tumors of the head and neck region)
  • Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery: Implant surgery (to replace missing teeth, ears and eyes with prosthesis that are anchored in the bone. Hearing aids can also be fixed to bone permanently)
  • Preprosthethic surgery (bone augmentation via bone graft from hip or skull)
  • Facial plastic surgery (rhinoplasty, otoplasty, facial implants, blepharoplasty)
  • Temporomandibular joint surgery (jaw joint surgery)
  • Salivary Gland Surgery: Treating infections of the head and neck region Maxillofacial surgery is a relatively new specialty and has started becoming more well known only in the last few years.

Proper and specialized training in this field of surgery (Maxillofacial) is important as it deals with the face. Any facial deformity due to trauma, congenital, acquired or any other cause can impart a high degree of emotional as well as physical trauma to the patient. Extensive “hands-on” training is vital.

Maxillofacial Surgeons routinely work alongside other specialists including Dentists, Orthodontists, Prosthodontists, Radiologists, ENT Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Neurosurgeons and other professionals allied to Medicine and Dentistry. This type of surgical expertise is now available in Madurai.
