Oral & Maxillofacial surgeons manage facial trauma including fractures to the mandible (lower jaw), maxilla (upper jaw), zygoma (cheek bone) and orbit (eye socket). These injuries may be the result of assaults, falls, sporting injuries or road accidents.  

Following an incident or accident, patients with facial injuries will usually present to their local hospital emergency department, or GP/medical centre where Xrays or CAT scans are arranged to diagnose a facial fracture.  Our practice is trained in the diagnosis and management of all types of facial fractures, so when treatment is recommended we will discuss the surgical options and anticipated outcomes, hospital admission, risks, side effects and recovery times. Sometimes the fracture may be ‘undisplaced’ and may not require surgical intervention, but care and monitoring for several weeks. Any associated visual disturbances will need to be assessed and so a referral to an Opthalmologist may also be required in these cases.

We are a referral based surgical practice specialising in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS), and have been serving the Central Coast community for over 20 years. An initial consultation is required prior to any surgical treatment.

Then, according to your needs, our doctors can provide procedures under local anaesthetics in our rooms (Gosford or Macquarie Street, Sydney), or can also provide treatment under general anaesthesia in a number of fully accredited Private Hospitals across the Central Coast, Northern Beaches and Sydney regions.

About Us

Our Central Coast rooms are located in the heart of Gosford, close to public transport and with our own onsite parking and level wheel chair access. Our practice is led by three highly experienced and dedicated practitioners, Dr Nigel Curtis, Dr Stephen Cox and Dr Ying Shi Chang who are supported by a friendly, professional and empathetic reception and clinical team.
