Oral Surgery/Jaw surgery problem


Hi again,
As you advised me to do, i'll try to find the best surgeons. But i was wondering : do you know and can you give me the names of the best maxillofacial surgeons in the USA please ?
Thanks again.

John -  For the situation you describe, it is a little difficult for me to tell you which surgeons are the best for this in the US.  Rather than a specific surgeon, the following are oral and maxillofacial surgery hospitals with the best surgeons for you.

New York Presbyterian Hospital (212) 305-7626  - Dr. Sidney Eisig, Chairman

University of North Carolina - (919) 966-1126 - Dr. Timothy Turvey, Chairman

University of Pennsylvania - (215) 662-6276 - Dr. Helen Giannakopolous, Director

Baylor College, Texas A&M Univ. Health Science Center -(214) 828-8170 - Dr. Michael Ellis

I wish you well and hope you can find a surgeon that helps you.
