Pathology of the Jaws and Face
Innovative Care For The Pathology of The Jaws And Face
Tumors and cysts of the jaws and face have special significance in treatment because the treatment and/or removal can be disfiguring and disruptive to speech and eating. Because of this, there is some tendency to avoid treatment and craniofacial surgery in general. In actuality, the opposite should be true. If these lesions are treated as soon as detected, it often means a smaller and easier surgery. If lesions do have large negative consequences — they can require bone grafting and possible dental or facial implants. Dr. Nordstrom has a thorough knowledge of the facial skeleton and soft tissue technologies available and the possible surgeries to treat these conditions. Having a background in head and neck cancer reconstruction and facial trauma reconstruction has uniquely qualified him to care for patients with these conditions.
