Maxillofacial & Orthognathic Surgery Program

We offer comprehensive state-of-the-art care for adults and children with disproportions of the upper and lower jaws and related facial structures. Yale has one of the most respected maxillofacial and orthognathic surgery programs in the nation.

Our team helps patients maximize the ability to speak, eat, and chew; alleviate breathing problems; and minimize temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and the potential for sleep apnea. We also focus on improving facial symmetry by balancing jaw-to-face ratio.

Our Approach

In caring for our patients, we harness the latest in medical care and technologies, as well as the most effective reconstructive surgical procedures. During the planning stage, we use the most sophisticated 3-D imaging tools available. With 3-D photo imaging, 3-D CT scan imaging and special software programs, we can simulate proposed outcomes so that patients can see the results before surgery.

Our team includes leading surgeons, nurse practitioners, and care coordinators who work together to address our patients’ needs in managing disproportions of the upper and lower jaws.
