Maxillofacial surgery is a relatively new speciality and has started becoming more well known only in the last few years.


Proper and specialized training in this field of surgery (Maxillofacial) is important as it deals with the face. Any facial deformity due to trauma, congenital , acquired or any other cause can impart a high degree of emotional as well as physical trauma to the patient. Extensive "hands-on" training is vital.
