Department of oral and maxillofacial plastic surgery
The department of oral and maxillofacial plastic surgery at University Hospital Frankfurt am Main of Goethe-University forms the link between medical/surgical and dental work. The department is a part of the interdisciplinary University Center for Tumor Diseases (UCT). As an internationally recognized clinical, training and research centre, the department offers treatment and diagnosis according to the latest guidelines and research findings. It contains 16 beds, divided into 7 double and 2 single rooms. The head of the department was chosen as the 2021 top physician in reconstructive surgery by Focus magazine. Modern methods are used during surgeries, such as gentle piezosurgery (ultrasound surgery) or removable osteosynthesis plates to fix the jaws, which no longer have to be removed in a second operation.
Diseases of the mouth and jaw are treated at the department. In severe cases, modern procedures are used to achieve the best possible long-term stable aesthetic result. In addition, the department specializes in complex implantology, tumours, facial injuries, and congenital disabilities.
