Reconstructive Surgery

Deepak Kademani DMD MD FACS and his team offer a full spectrum of head and neck reconstructive options. There are many reconstructive considerations designed to minimize functional and cosmetic changes. The goal of reconstruction is to reestablish normal function such as speaking, eating and appearance as quickly as possible. Whether reconstruction is required due to trauma or medical needs, Dr. Kademani and his team will explain your options to achieve maximal results. Being uniquely trained in dentistry and medicine, Dr Kademani is able to provide a range of reconstructive options from dental, jaw to full facial reconstruction. Each reconstructive plan is uniquely developed and utilizes a team approach for comprehensive care.

One of the major advances in the treatment of patients with oral and maxillofacial cancers has been the use of vascularized bone and/or tissue transplantation. With this technique, the tissue needed for reconstruction is harvested from a patient donor site along with the vein and artery. These are then transplanted and connected to the vein and artery near the defect and used to reconstruct the removed tissue. The most commonly used tissue sites are from the forearm skin (radial free forearm flap), the thigh skin (anterolateral thigh flap), the chest skin and muscle (pectoralis major flap), bone from the lower leg (fibula free flap), and bone from the hip (either vascularized or non-vascularized bone).
