Facial Fracture Surgery

Facial fractures, which are often caused by traumatic injuries, may require surgery to restore the function and appearance of the injured bones. Surgeons use small incisions on concealed areas of the face or in the mouth to repair and reposition the broken bones. In some cases, surgeons may use plates, screws or wires to set bones. As part of a Level 1 Trauma Center, our team provides the most advanced emergency care for everything from simple fractures to the most complex injuries. Our surgeons work closely with surgeons in other medical specialties to ensure that you receive comprehensive care that meets your unique needs.
