Each year, over 6 million reconstructive surgeries are performed in the U.S.
With the capacity to restore bodily function and appearance after either a trauma or caused by a congenital disability or medical condition, reconstructive surgery genuinely gives people back their lives.

Around 100 million Americans have some form of a sleep disorder, with obstructive sleep apnea being one of the most common issues.
Sleep apnea and snoring can be treated in several ways, both surgically and non-surgically, which may involve lifestyle changes, using sleep CPAP apparatuses, performing surgery to manipulate the breathing system’s physical structure, or using implants to monitor and stimulate the breathing mechanism.
A critical part of our physiology, our jaw is responsible for communication, expression, and eating, and a damaged or misaligned jaw can be debilitating. Jaw surgery, which can be performed for either cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, can restore the appearance or function of the jaw.
