  • Skeletal malformations 
  • Congenital malformations 
  • Head and neck cancer 
  • Pre-prosthetic reconstructive surgery
  • Implantology

Procedures performed

  • Orthognathic surgery: correction of irregularities in the bones (osteotomy) are usually intra-oral procedures. Several surgical techniques are possible (direct fixation or distraction osteogenesis) depending on the type and severity of malformation.  The procedure may be prepared and performed with 3D computer-aided surgical stimulation.
  • Preprosthetic surgery
  • Bone grafting
  • Implantology and dental restoration: in the case of partial or complete edentulism, combined with different grades of bone atrophy, surgeons may practise any form of bone reconstruction. They have new techniques at their disposal (CT-scan based diagnosis, 3D planning, computer-aided surgery, direct placement of dental implant and immediate loading) as well as a wide range of implant systems adapted to each individual case (one or several surgical procedures).
  • Cancer surgery: our staff has extensive experience in treating orbital and eyelid pathologies and/or head and neck cancer (benign or malignant tumours), as well as in all aspects of resection and reconstruction of hard and soft tissues.
