Most emergency care will be undertaken in Hull with elective surgery lists continuing in our local hospital.
We have an expert consultant-led team able to offer extensive treatment options to all our patients on site. We offer the full range of services as defined by the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. and are also able to provide outpatient and inpatient surgical care for patients with varying underlying medical problems.
Specialist services and procedures undertaken locally include:

- Orthognathic (dentofacial deformity ) surgery
- Salivary gland surgery

Please note that we are not able to offer a routine dental surgery service and elective patients need to be referred either by a dental or medical practitioner.
All patients must be referred formally, usually by their dentist and also general medical practitioners. Our consultant is also able to offer advice to general dental practitioners and general medical practitioners within the region.
