Maxillofacial Trauma

Maxillofacial trauma comprises soft tissue and bony injuries to the entire face and neck. Most commonly, accidents result in injuries to the mandible/jaw, nose, bone around the eyes/orbits, and ears. Dr. Hohuan has extensive training and experience in repair and rehabilitation of trauma that involves any soft tissue or bony structure throughout the entire face, head, and neck. He understands how these injuries can have a profound impact on one’s life (visual loss, hearing loss, scars, problems with bite, inability to breathe) and does his utmost to restore these to their pre-injury state through a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy of the head and neck, and the use of advanced techniques learned through years of study.
