Our department provides treatment for a wide spectrum of conditions affecting the maxillofacial region. Our residents receive full training in all aspects of maxillofacial surgery. Our faculty are consultants for the hospital's Level I trauma center, which receives the most critical trauma patients from all of Northeast Florida and South Georgia.

Our department works closely with the Center for Pediatric Facial Disorders to treat a multitude of pediatric cranio-maxillofacial anomalies. Our faculty and residents provide comprehensive treatment for the management of benign and malignant conditions of the maxillofacial region, including microvascular reconstruction. Residents also obtain a wide exposure to facial aesthetic surgery. In addition to the outstanding surgical training, our residents enjoy the many amenities of Jacksonville coastal living.
