Craniofacial surgery

Surgery of the head and skull to treat congenital and acquired conditions from trauma or disease.


Our craniofacial surgeons treat a range of conditions, including complicated wounds, skin cancers and congenital conditions.

They also reconstruct deformities from cancer, accidents and carry out cosmetic surgery.

All of our craniofacial surgeons are experienced in treating adults and children, and work very closely with our children's department.

Many procedures can be performed on an out-patient basis in our theatres, with aftercare provided by the surgeon and their experienced medical team.

Our surgeons have gone through specialised training in aesthetic surgery, and will provide the highest levels of support and expertise throughout your treatment.
