Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery

Caregivers walk with bed in corridor.


This department's mission is to carry out plastic surgery and maxillofacial care in both the region and Uppsala County. High-priority interventions include reconstruction of deformities, and reconstruction after major surgery for tumors or after severe injuries in which plastic surgery techniques are necessary. Measures such as these, when implemented in accordance with the national prioritizing guidelines, have great medicinal value.

The department comprises five major clinical areas: burn care; reconstruction of defects using microsurgery techniques; wound care; lip, jaw and cleft palate; and face traumatology.
