Mandibulectomy is the reduction of the mandibular portion of the jaw bone. This is used whether the cancer affects or is above the bone of the jaw. The deficiency is reconstructed from another part of the body with metal plates and/or bones. The patient sees their team of healthcare staff before the procedure, including the surgeon, an oncologist (chemotherapy manager if needed), radiation oncologist (radiation therapy manager if necessary) and a speech pathologist and speech therapist. A strategy is drawn up together so that everyone knows the expectations, treatment, and care of the patient.
There are threats to an operation; the physicians can speak about particular risks.
Reconstruction would be done in order to preserve the jaw functioning and its very natural external appearance if a whole portion of the jawbone has to be separated and the full thickness of the jawbone is reduced. In a later procedure occasionally restoration happens.
