Oral and Maxillofacial surgery


The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department aims all its activities at meeting the healthcare needs and expectations of the population, with criteria of equity, maximum efficiency and quality, thanks to the active commitment of its entire team of professionals. The department is formed by a group of highly qualified, well-connected and highly motivated professionals to deal with the pathologies related to the elderly.

The activity is provided in outpatients, the surgical area, hospitalisation and A&E. The Department has a significant oncological side to it : it forms a very active part of the Functional Head and Neck Unit and, together with the Faculty of Dentistry, promotes the prevention, diagnosis and early treatment of head and neck cancer.

On a clinical and experimental level, it takes part in numerous projects and develops new techniques within its different lines of activity. It was one of the first to use its own 3D printer to personalise all its procedures as fully as possible.

Lines of research

  • Virtual planning and 3D printing line in maxillofacial reconstruction: First centre in Spain to have a 3D printer and its own software to plan and obtain biological models of patients for personalised, safer surgery. This has been mentioned at different meetings, such as the 2016 national congress of the Spanish Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Society and the conference given at the 2018 EACMFS Congress in Munich.
  • Facial paralysis line: During the 2016-2017 period, 27 patients were operated on in our department, with 30 procedures; 28 static interventions and 2 dynamic interventions. The most frequent procedure was Rhinoplasty with Fascia Lata graft alone or combined with lifting of the nasolabial fold or the corner of the mouth (14), followed by lifting using Tightening Threads (13), Blepharoplasty (4), Lipofilling with autologous fat (4), Forehead or middle third face lift (5), Lengthening temporalis myoplasty (1), Sural Nerve Graft Crossface as first-stage surgery (1) awaiting 2nd stage with microvascular graft of gracilis and Canthopexy (1). The procedures performed jointly as Forehead lift with upper bilateral Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty with Frontoplasty, Commissuroplasty_9 lifting of the nasolabial fold with Fascia Lata graft and supraciliary lift, Commissuroplasty with Fascia Lata graft and middle third face lift, Lengthening temporalis myoplasty with middle third face lift, and Lipofilling with lifting threads.
  • Dentofacial deformity line: Virtual planning and personalised plate osteosynthesis Collaboration with the SAOS committee to offer the surgical treatment with maxillary osteotomy in suitable patients.
  • Care of adult patients with facial deformities: Partnership agreement with the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital to be a centre of reference to adult patients requiring follow-up and treatment.
