Facial Trauma

Facial trauma involves injuries to the bone, teeth, skin, gums, or other soft tissues. The primary goals of treatment are to stop any bleeding, create a clear airway, repair any broken or fractured bone, and suture any damaged soft tissue. The timing for treating these injuries will depend on the injury itself and the possible need to consult with other specialists for coordination of care. Treatment of facial trauma often requires a hospital environment although some procedures can be performed in an office setting. Dr. Stasulis treats injuries that require a hospital setting in at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, Connecticut.
