Fibula jaw in a day
The Fibula Jaw in a Day surgery has revolutionized the way we think about reconstruction of the jaws. Our surgeons at the Oral Cancer Institute pioneered the development of this technique and were only the second group after New York University to perform and publish on this innovative technique.
This technique allows for the removal of a jaw tumor and reconstruction with a new jaw and teeth in one setting, a process that takes 6-18 months using the traditional approach. Thus the patient goes in to the operating room with teeth prior to the tumor removal and leaves the operating room with teeth and a new jaw.
