About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Oral, Maxillofacial, Plastic Surgery at the University Hospital Jena offers the full range of medical services in the areas of its specialization. In addition to dental surgery, the department specializes in traumatology of the facial skull and skull base, head and neck tumors, orthognathic surgery, craniofacial malformations, cleft lip, plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, dentoalveolar interventions, etc. An interdisciplinary approach to the diagnostics, counseling and development of treatment programs contributes to the achievement of the best treatment outcome. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Schultze-Mosgau, who according to the Focus magazine, ranks among the top specialists in implantology.
One of the department's priorities is the diagnostics and treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area, ears, etc. The department's specialists have advanced experience in the treatment of hemangiomas – benign vascular lesions, which are quite common in newborns. Depending on the location, type and activity of hemangioma growth, the choice is made in favor of either active therapy or waiting tactics. Thanks to a combination of long experience and advanced medical technology, the best treatment results are provided.
The special focus is on the treatment of congenital facial malformations. In addition to a complete cleft lip, jaw and palate, the department successfully treats other, more rare, malformations, for example, Pierre Robin sequence, Treacher Collins syndrome, Goldenhar syndrome, cherubism, etc.
The treatment mainly involves the use of microsurgical techniques. In particular, microsurgical methods are successfully used in the reconstruction of bone and soft tissue defects of the head and neck caused by oncological diseases, after accidents or in the case of facial malformations. At the same time, tissues (bones, muscles, skin) from other parts of the body are used for the reconstruction of various facial structures. The use of the very latest microsurgical techniques helps to achieve optimal cosmetic results.
