About the Practice

What is a craniofacial surgeon?

Craniofacial surgery is a subspecialty of plastic surgery involved with the skull and facial bones as well as the relationship with the skin, muscle, fat, nerves and surrounding structures of the face. A craniofacial plastic surgeon is trained in treating three main categories: Reconstruction of traumatic injuries, reconstruction of congenital deformities or birth defects, and reconstruction of defects resulting from tumor or cancer surgery.
