Physical trauma is a horrible thing for anyone to endure, and recovery is almost never a clean or easy process. Not only does trauma and physical disfiguration affect a person’s ability to live their life in functional ways, but the aesthetics that are lost can severely damage the social and professional life of many people. Worse though than bodily harm and trauma is trauma and disfiguration of the face. Whether through disease, physical injury, or exposure to a harmful environment, facial trauma can ruin a person’s life. Luckily, plastic surgeons around the country have many ways to treat facial trauma. In the Northern Virginia area, the premier center for facial trauma restoration is Virginia Oral, Facial, and Implant surgery.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled, and uniquely qualified to manage and perform facial trauma restoration. Facial injury and jaw fractures, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional and physical trauma to patients. The implementation of facial trauma restoration is both an art and science in many ways. Not only do surgeons have to be trained and experienced in the various procedures and technology used for treatment, but the doctor should also have an understanding of the aesthetics of the face and an artistic eye to restore beauty to the site of a traumatic injury. In this way, hands-on experience and a familiarity with the cutting edge of the fields technology is required to provide the best care to the highest of modern standards.
Dr. Gocke meets and exceeds these modern standards. He is on staff at local hospitals and delivers emergency room coverage for facial injuries to patients in the Northern Virginia area. Dr. Gocke regularly face injuries such as:
- Facial Lacerations
- Intraoral Lacerations
- Avulsed (knocked out) Teeth
- Fractured Facial Bones (cheek, nose, or eye socket)
- Fractured Jaws (upper and lower jaw)
