Combined Total Joint Replacement With Orthognathic Surgery
Joint Disorders (TMD, TMJ)
What Is Combined Total Joint Replacement with Orthognathic Surgery?
A number of patients who require total joint prostheses can benefit from simultaneous orthognathic surgery for improvement of function, airway and breathing capabilities, better esthetic outcomes, and decrease or elimination of pain. Due to degeneration of native tissue and joint anatomy, facial morphology can become retrusive and asymmetric. With the combination surgery, multiple of these conditions can be addressed. The digital workflow of combination surgeries was developed by Dr. Movahed and utilized with precision during his surgeries.
