Nuestra filosofía de práctica es tratar a todos los pacientes como si fueran nuestra propia familia. La atención al paciente debe enfatizar el acceso fácil a los médicos en un ambiente amigable y de confianza. Es un honor tratar a los pacientes y hacer todo lo posible para escuchar, diagnosticar y, cuando sea apropiado, tratar las condiciones presentes con la meta de  mejorar la vida de las personas. Con este fin, nuestros médicos se esfuerzan por mantener los avances tecnológicos actuales y de vanguardia en nuestro campo, hecho demostrado por nuestras múltiples implicaciones educativas, académicas y clínicas. En GOFS, nos suscribimos estrictamente a los elementos fundamentales de nuestra profesión. Admitimos que la cirugía es una disciplina con un nivel muy alto de conocimiento y rendimiento dentro de la cual la responsabilidad de servir a los demás por encima del interés propio y la recompensa es nuestra directiva principal. Caracterizamos nuestro trabajo mediante el compromiso con la excelencia y la práctica con integridad personal y compasión inquebrantables. Consideramos que nuestra posición es más que un trabajo; es un honor y un privilegio.

Lo que un Cirujano debe ser:

“Las condiciones que de parte del cirujano que se requireren son cuatro: la primera que sea letrado, la segunda que sea experto, la tercera que sea ingenioso, la cuarta que sea capáz de adaptarse. En cuanto a la primera, que sea letrado , no sólo en los principios de la cirugía, mas de la medicina, tanto de la parte teórica, como de la parte práctica. Secundariamente, es menester el cirujano haya visto a otros obrar. Tercio, que sea ingenioso y de buen juicio y memoria para recordar condiciones. Para el cuarto, que sean adaptables y capaces de acomodarse a las circunstancias. Que el cirujano sea audaz en las cosas seguras y precavido en las peligrosas. Deben evitar todos los tratamientos y las practicas defectuosas. Deben ser amables con el enfermo, respetuosos con sus compañeros, cautelosos en sus pronósticos; que sean modestos, dignos, amables, compadecidos y misericordiosos; que no codicien el dinero ni sean deshonestos; que su recompensa sea según su trabajo, los medios del paciente, la clase del asunto y su propia dignidad. “

Abstract

Injuries to peripheral branches (IAN, LN, LBN) of the trigeminal nerve during the removal of M3s are known and accepted risks in oral and maxillofacial surgery practice. These risks might be reduced by modifications of evaluation or surgical techniques, depending on the surgeon's judgment in individual patients. If a nerve injury does occur, prompt recognition, subjective and objective evaluation,and development of a treatment plan, if the sensory deficit fails to resolve in a reasonable period and is unacceptable to the patient, give the patient the best chance of achieving improvement or recovery of sensory function in the distribution of the injured nerve. Microneurosurgery may produce return of useful sensory function or complete sensory recovery, if done in a timely fashion by an experienced microsurgeon, in greater than 80% of patients who sustain nerve injuries during the removal of M3s.

Abstract

Treatment of the patient who has sustained a nerve injury from dental implant procedures involves prompt recognition of this complication, evaluation of sensory dysfunction, the position of the nerve vis-à-vis the implant, and timely management of the injured nerve. In some patients, removal or repositioning of the implant and surgical exploration and repair of the injured nerve will maximize the implant patient's potential for a successful recovery from nerve injury.

When to refer a patient with a nerve injury to a specialist.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Nerve injury is a known and accepted risk of many oral surgical and dental procedures. Such injuries may occur despite the practitioner's providing the best of care. Taking proactive measures during evaluation and surgery may reduce the incidence of nerve injury.

RESULTS:

Injuries to the peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve can cause unfavorable effects on orofacial sensation and related functions such as eating, drinking, washing, speaking, shaving and kissing.

CONCLUSIONS:

When nerve injuries secondary to dental or oral surgery procedures fail to resolve promptly and the resulting dysesthesia is unacceptable to the patient, timely treatment gives the patient the best chance of a favorable outcome. Treatment may involve surgical exploration and repair of the injured nerve.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS:

Recognition of and prompt referral for nerve injuries give the patient the best chance of achieving improvement or recovery of sensory function in the distribution of the injured nerve.

Trigeminal Nerve Injuries

Description
Trigeminal nerve injuries present complex clinical challenges and can be very distressing for patients, resulting in abnormal sensations of the oro-facial region, yet surgeons may lack the knowledge required for optimal patient management based upon the specific nerve injury. This textbook is the first to be devoted to the diagnosis and management of trigeminal nerve injuries. A wide range of topics are covered, including historical perspectives, demographics, etiology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, clinical neurosensory testing, nonsurgical management, and surgical management and principles of microneurosurgery, specifically involving the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves. Algorithms and a glossary are provided that will assist in the clinical management of these complex scenarios. The authors include surgeons with considerable experience and expertise in the field who have previously published on the subject. This book will serve as an ideal clinical reference for surgeons with patients who sustain trigeminal nerve injuries.

Aesthetic Surgery Techniques E-Book: A Case Based Approach

James Frame, Shahrokh Bagheri, David Smith, Husain Ali Khan – (Editors)

Description
This new text book (publication date early 2018) will provide the readers of cosmetic surgery with a systematic approach to the management of patients with the most common presentations and requests for cosmetic surgery. Contrary to traditional textbooks of surgery, in this book we emphasize a case based approach to learning that is suitable for readers of cosmetic surgery at all levels of training or practice.

The last two decades have witnessed significant contributions to the field of cosmetics and have changed both technical and philosophical aspects of this surgery. Many of these changes are designed to provide more predictable, lasting and enhanced cosmetic results without compromise of function. This first of its kind multi-specialty book written in a case based format is an elegant and effective way to demonstrate and teach cosmetic surgery.

Fat Grafting for Aesthetic Facial Surgery

Shahrokh C. Bagheri, Husain Ali Khan, and Behnam Bohluli, (Editors)
Description
Over the last few years, fat grafting has evolved significantly and is becoming a growing trend. Historic concepts of fat cells of simply being temporary fillers are changing as it is being discovered that fat cells are able to maintain their vitality throughout the surgical procedure and survive at the recipient site. 

This paradigm shift has affected many aspects of fat graft procedures. Even the terminology ‘fat injection’, which implies a spiritless and empty technique, is now being referred as a ‘fat transfer’ or ‘fat graft’ which emphasizes the viability of these cells.

It is not surprising that with these advances, current indications for fat grafting (e.g. facial augmentation and facial rejuvenations) are producing more predictable and have higher quality results. Additionally, these techniques are newly being used adjunctively in face lifts, blepharoplasty, revision rhinoplasty and orthognathic surgery and are substituting some of these current aesthetic procedures as they may be less complex. 

This issue of atlas of oral and maxillofacial surgery Clinics of North America specifically covers an update on all above-mentioned areas of fat grafting, a multidisciplinary team of authors and experts that are mostly among the world-known aesthetic surgeons may be a paramount feature of this issue. We hope,   this new exceptional situation will help to reveal different concepts and overlooked sides to fat grafting and readers find most of their questions and needs in these twelve comprehensive articles.

We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact Dr. Bagheri provides many types of dental services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

Please print and complete the following forms to bring with you to your appointment:

Oral Maxillofacial InfectionMaxillofacial infections are one of the oldest disease processes treated by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. They commonly present to the office, or in severe cases to the hospital emergency room. Although the majority of infections can be treated in a non-emergent fashion, early recognition and correct management of severe infections can be life saving. Knowledge of the surgical anatomy, and path of spread of infections in the head and neck is fundamental in correct diagnosis and treatment. The ability of severe infections of the sublingual, submandibular, and parapharyngeal spaces to cause airway compromise, cavernous sinus thrombosis, and the possibility or mediastinal spread of infection have been causes of mortality and morbidity, especially in the medically compromised patient that present late in the disease process. Despite the availability of a wide spectrum of antimicrobial agents and increasing knowledge of microbiology, the treatment of odontogenic infections remains primarily surgical. Removal of the source of infection and establishment of adequate drainage for elimination of the purulent material is the mainstay treatment. Adequate antibiotic coverage is however important and should not be overlooked. Dr. Bagheri has extensive training and experience in the surgical management of simple and complex infections of the head and neck.

Pathological Diseases

Pathologic disease of the head and neck encompass a wide spectrum of disorders with associated maxillofacial or systemic involvement:

  • Benign neoplasm of the lower lip. Benign neoplasm of the lower lip.
  • Salivary gland stone X-ray.
  • Salivary gland stone X-ray

Several categories of disorders can be identified, which can frequently assist the physician in diagnosis of such conditions:

  • Infectious (e.g. bacterial, viral, fungal infections)
  • Traumatic etiology (e.g. irritation fibroma)
  • Neoplastic. Epithelial, connective tissue, glandular, lymphatic, osseous, muscle, and vascular tumors that can be characterized as either benign or malignant tumors. Metastatic disease to the head and neck are by definition malignant.
  • Immunologic mediated disorders (e.g.rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Side effects or other medical or surgical therapy (e.g. osteoradionecrosis)
  • Cysts of the head and neck (inflammatory and non inflammatory cysts)
  • Pathologic processes related to the regional anatomy (e.g. sialolithiasis)
  • Congenital malformations (cleft lip and palate)
  • Degenerative disorders (osteoarthritis)
  • Iatrogenic (e.g. intra operative damage to a cranial nerve)
  • Idiopathic (e.g. aphthous ulcers)
  • Vasculitis (e.g. temporal arteritis)

Dr. Bagheri can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of the many facial pathological processes.

Facial Trauma Specialist AtlantaFortunately, with the advent of stricter seatbelt laws and airbags, the incidence of maxillofacial trauma to the facial structures from motor vehicle accidents has decreased. Despite the improved safety measures, motor vehicle accidents remain to be a leading cause of facial trauma. Isolated maxillofacial injuries are also commonly seen in association with falls, sporting injuries and interpersonal violence.

Dr. Bagheri completed part of his Emory residency training at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, and subsequently completed a fellowship training in Cranio-Maxillofacial Trauma and Cosmetic Surgery in Portland, Oregon. He has received more formal training in facial trauma than most surgeons obtain in a regular training program. To this date he continues to teach and treat complex facial injuries at Grady Memorial Hospital as a Clinical Assistant Professor or Surgery. In addition he is on staff at several other local hospitals in Atlanta including Northside Hospital, and Crawford Long Hospital of Emory University. Dr Bagheri is the author of multiple trauma articles in leading scientific journals, including the development of the internationally published Facial Injury Severity Scale (FISS), for the management of facial trauma. He possesses both a dental, and a medical degree, that aids in rehabilitation of oral and facial structures including dental implants.

Dr Bagheri believes that facial trauma and cosmetic facial surgery are closely related, and optimal results can be obtained by an understanding of both maxillofacial trauma and facial cosmetic surgery; “My goal of facial trauma reconstruction is to achieve the pre-injury level of both function and optimal esthetic results.”

The facial trauma services provided by Dr. Bagheri include:

  • Dento-Alveolar (teeth related) fractures
  • Mandible (lower jaw) fractures
  • Nasal fractures
  • Zygomatic arch and Zygomatico Maxillary Complex fractures (cheek bone)
  • Maxillary and other midface fractures (Le Fort fractures)
  • Frontal sinus (forehead) fractures
  • Orbital fractures
  • Pan-facial (complex) fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Tracheostomy

Dento alveolar surgery is the most commonly performed surgical procedure by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. This refers to the surgical procedures associated with the dentate segment of the maxilla or mandible, termed the alveolar ridge. They include a variety of procedures ranging from simple tooth extractions, alveoplasty (recontouring of the alveolar bone), removal of tori, exposure of impacted teeth for orthodontic treatment, and extraction of impacted third molars. The origins and the current practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery is heavily based on dento alveolar surgery. Over 50 percent of the practice of oral and maxillofacial surgeons worldwide compromises dento alveolar procedures. 
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Since its establishment in 1918, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), has gone through extensive change, reflecting progressive changes in the specialty. Initially called the American Society of Exodontists, it was originally formed by a group of oral surgeons in Chicago after the National Dental Association meeting. As it has grown, the association has gone through several name changes, each reflecting the expansion of the specialty. Despite the wide scope of training of graduating oral and maxillofacial surgeons, dento alveolar surgery remains the foundation of our specialty.

Dental Implant Procedure

Nobel Biocare Implants

Correction of dento-facial deformities using combined orthodontic and surgical treatment can provide dramatic changes in both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the face. Patient commitment to an extended period of treatment along with a close working relationship with the orthodontist are essential to a successful outcome.

An important component of the management of patients planning for orthognathic surgery is the correct diagnosis of both dental and skeletal abnormalities. Dental compensation can frequently mask an underlying skeletal deformity. Assessment of the maxilla and mandible should consider the three dimensions: anterior-posterior, vertical, and transverse. Evaluation at each dimension should account for cosmetic factors (e.g amount of tooth/gingival show, or size of chin), growth abnormalities (hypo or hyperplasia), and asymmetries.

Treatment is tailored at each patient based on the procedure that would achieve the best result while minimizing morbidity. Patient education about the procedure, post-operative healing and potential complications of orthognathic surgery is by far the most important factor towards patient satisfaction.

Following are some of the conditions that may indicate the need for corrective jaw surgery:

  • Difficulty chewing, or biting food
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Chronic jaw or jaw joint (TMJ) pain and headache
  • Excessive wear of the teeth
  • Open bite (space between the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed)
  • Unbalanced facial appearance from the front, or side
  • Facial injury
  • Birth defects
  • Receding lower jaw and chin
  • Protruding jaw
  • Inability to make the lips meet without straining
  • Chronic mouth breathing
  • Sleep apnea (breathing problems when sleeping, including snoring)

Injury to the peripheral sensory branches of the trigeminal nerve (nerves that provide feeling to the face and oral structures) are well known complications of a variety of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures, including third molar (wisdom teeth) removal, endodontic (root canal) procedures, dental implant placement, facial trauma, and other oral and facial procedures.

Repair of select nerves in the facial region can be done if the diagnosis is made in a timely fashion. Dr. Bagheri has trained during his fellowship with microvascular surgeons in conjunction with maxillofacial reconstruction. In addition he is certified in microsurgery form Emory University, Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

Dr. Bagheri has given several lectures on microneurosurgical repair of nerves in the maxillofacial region, and is currently one of the few surgeons in the South Eastern United States that provides this service.

Most commonly repaired nerves by Dr. Bagheri are:

  • Lingual Nerve injury (usually presenting with a numb tongue).
  • Inferior Alveolar Nerve injury (usually presenting as a numb lip and gums).
  • Mental Nerve (usually presenting as a numb lip).

Reconstructive maxillofacial surgery refers to the wide range of procedures designed to rebuild or enhance soft or hard tissue structures of the maxillofacial region. Ablative tumor surgery (benign or malignant) and traumatic injuries (especially avulsive) commonly demand reconstructive procedures to restore the functional and cosmetic deficit. Loss of soft or hard tissue secondary to infectious processes (e.g. osteomyelitis), or tissue injury due to radiation (e.g. osteoradionecrosis) may also require reconstructive measures. In addition the decrease in quantity and quality of maxillo-mandibular structures with age (that may be accelerated by other processes such as early teeth loss), can be addressed with reconstructive measures to augment the tissue for restoration using dental implants.

In the past two decades three developments have revolutionalized the reconstruction of the maxillofacial structures. First, the understanding of bone biology has allowed advanced bone grafting procedures in a variety or circumstances (e.g. sinus lift procedures, mandibular augmentation/reconstruction). Second, the advent of microvascular free flap techniques allows the transfer of tissue to reconstruct large soft and/or hard tissue defects (e.g. radial forearm fasciocutaneous or fibula osteocutaneous free flaps). Thirdly, the development and advances in dental implant techniques allows for successful dental rehabilitation. More recently, purification and identification of bone morphogenic proteins (BMP) and other chemicals that induce new tissue (bone) formation are becoming available, but remain to be fully elucidated. Future research may reveal methods of regenerating neural and muscle tissue. Future molecular biology techniques using gene therapy may reveal further knowledge that can be applied to maxillofacial reconstruction.

What the Surgeon Ought to be:
The conditions necessary for the Surgeon are four: First, they should be learned; Second, they should be expert; Third, they should be ingenious; and Fourth, they should be able to adapt themselves.
It is required for the First that the Surgeon should know not only the principles of surgery, but also those of medicine in theory and practice; for the Second, that they should have seen others operate; for the Third, that they should be ingenious, of good judgment and memory to recognize conditions; and for the Fourth, that they be adaptable and able to accommodate themself to circumstances. Let the Surgeon be bold in all sure things, and fearful in dangerous things; let them avoid all faulty treatments and practices. They ought to be gracious to the sick, considerate to their associates, cautious in their prognostications. let them be modest, dignified, gentle, pitiful, and merciful; not covetous nor an extortionist of money; but rather let their reward be according to their work, to the means of the patient, to the quality of the issue, and to their own dignity".
