Olympic Athlete Undergoes Surgery For Fractured Jaw

Olympic Athlete Undergoes Surgery For Fractured JawIn addition to the many cosmetic procedures Dr. Azizzadeh performs, he is also an expert in facial reconstruction.

Recently in the 2012 Olympics, London’s Kate Walsh, captain of the field hockey team, went down during the team’s 4-0 opening win over Japan. While making a tackle just four minutes before the end of the game, Kate Walsh received a blow to the left side of her jaw with a hockey stick. This resulted in a fractured jaw.

She has since had surgery where a metal plate was secured to her jaw to help stabilize the fracture.  Dr Azizzadeh has performed many of these types of surgeries, with huge success.

If you or someone you know has suffered a traumatic injury to the face, schedule a consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh.
