Facial Trauma Surgery (Fractures of Jaws and Facial Bones)
Fractures (broken bones) can involve the lower jaw, upper jaw, cheekbones, eye socket, and combinations of these bones. Treatments for these injuries are frequently managed under general anaesthesia.
Whether the result of an accident or sports-related injury of the face or mouth, trauma can significantly change your appearance and can make breathing and eating difficult. Dr. Guru Bhushan is an expert in treating facial fractures and can repair most of these injuries through the mouth, eliminating visible scars.
Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional, as well as physical trauma to patients. The science and art of treating these injuries require special training involving a “hands on” experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient’s long term function and appearance.
Facial trauma can range between minor injury to disfigurement that lasts a lifetime. The face is critical in communicating with others, so it is important to get the best treatment possible. In some cases, immediate surgery is needed to realign fractures before they heal incorrectly. Other injuries will have better outcomes if repairs are done after cuts and swellings have improved.
