Reasons people visit an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital include:
Many types of surgery carried out by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon are highly complex. While many treatments can be provided on-site at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital, others may need to be carried out an external venue. This will always be fully explained to you if this is required.
Most of the people we see have been referred by their GP, dentist, a consultant in another speciality such as ENT or Dermatology or a maxillofacial specialist from outside the region.
They will usually carry out a physical examination of the affected area(s) and may feel your neck to see if your lymph glands are enlarged.
If you have previously had dental X-rays or other imaging, these will be reviewed. You may be referred for further investigations, either for diagnostic purposes or to help plan treatment.
These may include X-ray (of individual teeth or the whole jaw – orthopantomography), CT or an MRI scan. Our proximity to Mount Vernon Hospital (and its renowned Mount Vernon Cancer Centre) provides excellent access to superb facilities and additional diagnostic and treatment options if needed.
Your clinical history, physical examination, and the results of any tests will be used to confirm a diagnosis and plan appropriate treatment. Your Consultant will talk these through thoroughly with you, answering any questions or concerns you may have. They will make sure you know how any surgery will be done, how it will help you, and the results you should expect to see as a result.
Many treatments can be provided on-site, while others may need to be carried out at an external venue. Any treatment will always be carried out by the Consultant you see at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital.
Ideally positioned for people living in and around Northwood, excellent travel links make it easy for people to visit from other parts of Middlesex and beyond. (For example, we regularly see people from Berkshire and Hampshire.)
