Interdisciplinary Medical Center Clinic for Maxillofacial Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Implant Center

The clinic is Germany’s largest non-university based special clinic for oral and maxillofacial surgery offering maximum care in our field equivalent to the service found at a lot of university clinics.

One of our specialties is the operative reconstruction of high-grade reduction of maxillary bone as a consequence of the loss of natural teeth to provide the patient’s ability to chew and to speak and to grant aesthetical appearance of the face by the aid of implants. Our clinic was appointed to be a “Centre of Excellence” by the International Team of Implantology (ITI).

Accident victims with severe injuries, patients with tumours or congenital malformations (e.g. lip or maxillary gaps, cleft palate) are mostly treated in our centre.  We are further specialised in the treatment of patients with difficult correction of the jaw alignment or jaw abnormalities and malocclusions. These sophisticated procedures are performed using the most advanced computer-, navigation and operating technologies.
