Corrective Jaw Surgery
Corrective Jaw Surgery Is A Consult Away At AOFS
Jaw surgery can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions such as TMJ and sleep apnea with excellent results and patient satisfaction. This includes but is not limited to: major and minor skeletal discrepancies, facial asymmetry, facial syndromes, growth abnormalities and post-traumatic deformities. Corrective jaw surgery is underutilized due to some misconceptions within the general public and subsequently, it is not discussed as often as it should be. Despite this, patients who have jaw surgery are generally very happy with the decision and the outcome of corrective jaw surgery. One of Dr. Nordstrom’s primary areas of focus is in corrective jaw surgery treatment. In addition to his local practice, he maintains privileges and operates at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle. There he operates specifically in the areas of jaw correction and joint reconstruction surgery. Dr. Nordstrom cares greatly about the impact this surgery can have on patients but understands the financial challenges it can mean to families, which is why he will work hard to make surgery possible for patients in need of this type of care. You do not have to consider long-distance travel to have your corrective jaw surgery performed — it can be done right here in Alaska, by a specialist focused in this area.
