University Clinic for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the University Hospital Magdeburg.
Dear patients, relatives, visitors, colleagues and students,
I would like to thank you for your interest in our homepage and I am pleased to inform you about the Clinic for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The University Clinic for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a modern treatment center, which offers specialized oral surgical treatment.
Health care in the north of Saxony-Anhalt and beyond.
For the inpatient treatment of approximately 1400 patients per year, 26 patient beds and two operating rooms are available. Our university outpatient clinic is equipped with five efficient treatment units. Approximately 2500 patients are treated surgically here every year. A special focus is the treatment with denta l implants. Our clinic has a dental laboratory and a modern X-ray department, including state-of-the-art DVT (digital volume tomography).
Our range of services include all surgical procedures in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. These are mainly the treatment of mandibular, facial skull and dental fractures, the treatment of cleft lip, jaw and palate, craniofacial surgery (skull deformities), the surgical therapy of jaw malpositions (combined orthodontic/jaw surgical therapy), the complex, partly interdisciplinary treatment of tumor diseases including plastic-reconstructive measures in the facial area and for the restoration of the jaw bone. In performing the surgery, we are guided by the latest technical medical standards with individually coordinated and tailored therapy for each individual patient case.
In addition to all of this, cooperation with outpatient colleagues, as well as interdisciplinary cooperation with other departments in the university hospital and beyond, is of great importance and guarantees the holistic and best possible care for our patients. In order to guarantee this quality standard of daily work, motivated and professionally qualified employees are available in the medical and nursing fields.
In addition to hospital care, the University Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery contributes to the continuing education and training of medical and dental colleagues, in the university education of medical students, and in scientific research activities.
