About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Oral, Maxillofacial Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery at the St. Lukas Clinic Solingen offers the full service range in these fields and specializes in the surgical treatment of diseases of the skin and bones, as well as soft tissues in the head, teeth and oral cavity. One of the key focuses of the medical facility is the treatment of cancer and precancerous conditions of the oral cavity, facial skull and facial skin. During all operations, the department's specialists certainly take into account such important aspects, as the necessary amount of medical intervention and the appearance of the patient after surgery. The Chief Physician of the department is PD Dr. Dr. med. Markus Martini.
The department specializes in the diagnostics and treatment of cancer and precancerous conditions of the oral cavity, facial bones and facial skin. Thanks to modern surgical methods, in many cases, it is possible not only to remove malignant neoplasms, but also to restore the bone structures of the face (as a rule, donor tissue is taken from the iliac crest).
Another important field of the department's work is the surgical treatment of congenital pathologies, particularly, cleft lip, jaw and palate in children. Cleft can adversely affect the appearance, respiration, as well as speech and hearing, and therefore requires prompt correction. The optimal solution is surgery in early childhood, which leaves behind an almost imperceptible scar.
The department's facial plastic surgeons successfully eliminate scars and defects after injuries, accidents. Such defects create psychological problems, reduce the patient's self-esteem, and also increase the risk of future health problems. Thus, reconstructive interventions in the face area help patients not only to regain self-confidence, but also get rid of functional disorders (problems with swallowing, chewing, speech, etc.).
The focus of orthodontic surgery is the correction of jaw anomalies. In the case of jaw anomalies, orthodontic treatment is recommended not only for aesthetic reasons, as malocclusion can lead to problems with chewing and speech. During surgical correction, incisions are made inside the oral cavity, which helps to avoid visible scars. The surgeon performs all manipulations through small incisions and puts the jaw bone in the anatomically correct position, so the jaw, depending on the anomaly, can be moved forward or backward.
The department's service range is complemented by classical dental operations, including wisdom tooth extraction, root apex resection, cyst treatment or periodontal surgery. In addition, the experienced implantologists offer professional placement of dental implants.
The main focuses of the department include:
- Surgical treatment of skin and bone diseases, as well as soft tissues in the head, teeth and oral cavity
- Surgical treatment of cancers and precancerous conditions of the oral cavity, facial skull and facial skin
