Other treatment methods may be used instead of or in addition to surgery depending on your specific injury. Broken bones in your face can cause a physical deformity as well as interfere with vision, nerve function and the full use of your head and face. As a board-certified ophthalmic and oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Ken Morgenstern is a specialist in restoring damage to the face and eye area, while also creating cosmetically optimal results.
Our oculo-facial surgeons can repair many different types of fractures involving the bones of the face or bones around the eye. Facial and orbital fractures include:
These fractures can be sustained in sports accidents, auto accidents or other situations. It is important to treat these fractures because, unrepaired, they can lead to facial deformity, poor eye movement or limited facial function, double vision, and numbness in your cheeks or other areas of your face.
The bones in your face are vitally important to the appearance of your face as well as to your ability to use your facial muscles to chew, speak, see, smell and otherwise function. Surgery to repair facial and orbital fractures can help you to continue to enjoy optimal use of these supportive facial structures. During your consultation with one of our surgeons, you and he will discuss your injury and how he might best repair it. We always have the goal of achieving the best possible result for you, including rebuilding both the appearance and function of your face and eyes.
