Craniofacial Surgery

The craniofacial plastic surgeons at the Brigham and Women's Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are experts at reconstructing the face, head, jaw and neck. Our treatments address conditions related to trauma, injury, cancer, congenital anomalies and a range of rare diseases.

Expert, Personalized Care

We understand that every patient who comes to us for craniofacial surgery has a different set of physical and emotional needs. Our multidisciplinary, team-based approach brings together plastic surgeons in collaboration with neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, ophthalmologists, oncologists and social workers to create a comprehensive treatment plan that is right for you.

Our specialists offer a full range of techniques to repair and reconstruct soft tissue and/or bone to improve function, relieve pain, restore appearance and enhance your quality of life. We have extensive experience in treating facial paralysis and pain caused by stroke, infection, Bell's palsy and other conditions and diseases.
