This introductory textbook presents the combined and focused expertise and competence of the different specialties on the entire craniofacial skeleton.

In addition to standard procedures, techniques representing recent surgical advances and new developments are introduced as well. This textbook not only provides an overview on current concepts of craniomaxillofacial trauma care and orthognathic surgery, but also helps to understand the complexity of the craniofacial skeleton and its related soft tissues for an efficient and successful reconstruction of the face following trauma and congenital deformities.
