About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University Hospital Giessen under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. Hans-Peter Howaldt covers the entire range of maxillofacial / facial / oral surgery, including plastic surgery. The Department specializes in surgery for dysgnathia, craniosynostosis, laser therapy, dental implants, traumatology etc. The Department follows a special tradition in the treatment of tumors in the oral and maxillofacial area (tumor surgery).

The Department is especially focused on tumor surgery. The chief physician of the Department, Prof. Dr. Dr. Hans-Peter Howaldt, has worked for many years in different collegiate organs of the German-Austrian-Swiss Study Group on Maxillofacial Tumors and the German Cancer Society. He also participated in the development of modern guidelines for treatment.

To provide a comprehensive diagnosis (staging), the University Hospital Giessen has state-of-the-art imaging techniques (sonography, endoscopy, X-ray, CT, MRI, PET-CT, scintigraphy). In severe cases specialists discuss everything within the framework of weekly cancer consultations. It's often necessary to cooperate with different disciplines (otolaryngology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, general surgery), during surgery as well. 

In the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery, cancer surgery often results in defects, which have a negative effect on both function and appearance. Therefore, when performing the operation surgeons pay particular attention to the aesthetic aspect. To this end, the university hospital uses special plastic reconstructive procedures, which facilitate a more simple return to everyday life. The doctors of the Department attach particular importance to surgical reconstruction by means of microvascular tissue transfer. In this case, after tumor removal the defects will be reconstructed with the patient’s own tissues.
