About the department

The department of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Academic Hospital Koblenz-Montabaur offers a full range of surgical interventions to treat diseases and defects of the maxillofacial region. The department surgeons are fluent in all classical and new surgical techniques, guaranteeing the patient's best therapeutic and aesthetic results. Doctors strive to eliminate the health problem and preserve the correct functions (such as chewing, speaking, and swallowing) and aesthetic appeal. The department has modern computer systems and 3D technologies that allow doctors to plan the intervention course to the smallest detail and predict its result as much as possible.

Surgeons specialise in diagnosing and treating all upper jaw, face, and temporomandibular joint area defects. In addition, the department presents plastic surgery to treat wrinkles, bags under the eyes and much more. Many tumours also fall within the specialist field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. The department has all the options to remove the tumour gently. In the case of severe interventions due to medical necessity or on request, the treatment is carried out by an anesthesiologist under short-term outpatient anaesthesia.
