Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at UI Health provides evaluation, management, and surgical treatment of diseases, disorders, and injuries of the face, jaw, mouth, and teeth. Our surgeons specialize in reconstructive, corrective, and aesthetic surgery, and microsurgical nerve repair, to improve facial appearance and function. They also collaborate with our Craniofacial Center and Head & Neck Cancer teams to provide comprehensive treatment for patients receiving primary treatment with those programs.
Dr. Michael Miloro and Tanya McCarter
Tanya McCarter is a UI Health nurse who suffered damage to a facial nerve during dental surgery. To treat the damaged nerve, she turned to her UI Health colleague, microsurgery expert Dr. Michael Miloro, who literally authored a textbook on her particular injury. "When I started researching nerve repair specialists, I found Dr. Miloro. And because he was at UI Health, I knew he would take great care of me," said Tanya.
