Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled, and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Injuries to the face and jaw fractures, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional and physical trauma to patients. The science and art of treating these injuries require special training, involving a “hands-on” experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient’s long-term function and appearance as well as a smooth recovery.
Dr. Gocke and Dr. Whiting meet and exceed these modern standards. Dr. Gocke is on staff at local hospitals and delivers emergency room coverage for facial injuries to patients in the Northern Virginia area, which include the following conditions:
- Facial lacerations
- Intraoral lacerations
- Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
- Fractured facial bones (cheek, nose, or eye socket)
- Fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw)
- Only a physician with this level of expertise can restore your self-image cosmetically and functionally.
