Sleep apnea surgery
Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is an increasingly common occurrence in many of our patients. While medical management is key in the overall treatment, many patients with moderate to severe OSA benefit from maxillomandibular advancement surgery. In this innovative procedure, the upper and lower jaws, as well as the chin bone, are moved anteriorly — 10 mm, on average — to increase the posterior airway space. This change leads to improved ventilation, tissue perfusion and reduced snoring.
Pediatric craniofacial surgery
OMFS faculty who practice at UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children’s Hospital manage congenital pediatric deformities, such as cleft lip, cleft palate and skull deformities, as well as pediatric pathology. Steinberg performs all of these surgeries, many of which are done in conjunction with UF Health Pediatric Neurosurgery. In addition to treating the region’s pediatric population, Steinberg travels to Vietnam annually to provide humanitarian services for children in need of cleft and craniofacial care.
Jaw restoration and implant surgery
Contemporary implant restoration of the oral cavity and jaws is an integral part of our outpatient practice. With the aid of navigational surgery and virtual surgical planning, our surgeons easily and predictably restore oral functions, such as chewing solid foods, swallowing, talking and smiling.
