Yale Medicine has one of the most respected maxillofacial and orthognathic surgery programs in the nation. We offer comprehensive state-of-the-art care for adults and children with disproportions of the upper and lower jaws and related facial structures. We help our patients maximize the ability to speak, eat, and chew; alleviate breathing problems; and minimize TMJ pain and the potential for sleep apnea. We also focus on improving facial symmetry by balancing jaw-to-face ratio.
In caring for our patients, we harness the latest in medical care and technologies and the most effective reconstructive surgical procedures. During the planning stage, we use the most sophisticated 3D imaging tools available. With 3D photo imaging, 3D CT scan imaging and special software programs, we can simulate proposed outcomes so that you can see the results before surgery. Our surgical expertise ensures that, whenever possible, our patients experience shorter hospital stays and less postoperative discomfort.
Our physicians and nursing staff are committed to providing safe and compassionate care.
