Maxillofacial Surgery: research and teaching

Maxillofacial surgery research

In the field of research, SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital shares knowledge with other local and international specialists, giving courses on managing patients with lip and palate cleft. We also study new 3D surgery techniques for surgical planning, specifically focusing on the design of surgical guides and the use of new materials. Our aim is to contribute towards improving the health of children by using new tools that enable us to obtain the best results and the fastest possible recovery.
