Hundreds of people with cranio/maxillofacial trauma are treated every year at Rhode Island Hospital. In addition, the combined cranio/maxillofacial service treats patients with a variety of related congenital and developmental disorders. Physician staff members have completed specialized training in otolaryngology, dentistry or orthodontics.
All intracranial and paracranial procedures are performed in conjunction with the neurosurgery department. In addition, plastic surgeons work closely with neurosurgery, otolaryngology, and ophthalmology to provide craniofacial approaches for tumor removal.
The plastic surgery department at Rhode Island Hospital actively conducts both clinical and laboratory research in cranio/maxillofacial surgery.
