Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

The maxillofacial and orthodontics departments at Northwick Park Hospital form a regional centre of expertise for facial trauma, facial deformity, skin cancer and head and neck cancer.

Serving most of North West London it is one of the largest units in the country and is a core member of the North West London Cancer Network. 

The team treats diseases affecting the face, jaw, mouth, teeth, neck, salivary glands and skin, facial deformities, facial injuries and serious infections of the head and neck. A dedicated team of head and neck surgeons and support staff manage oral cancer and other head and neck tumours. Their work can include everything from removal of impacted teeth, dental implants and rehabilitation, trauma of the face, jaws and head and neck to skin cancer and salivary gland surgery.  

The team routinely undertakes facial plastic surgery and has long-standing experience in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures from facelifts to nose, eyelid and ear surgery. 

Other than routine procedures, orthodontic care for the most severe and complex malocclusions (misaligned teeth) is offered and the department is known for its experience in orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth, sleep apnoea, or to correct orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces).
