My Expertise

Nerve Repair

When it comes to micro-surgical skills required for nerve repair, Alastair is at the head of the field.

Even during routine surgery, several nerves are at risk. Injury to these nerves can occur following oral surgical procedures, particularly wisdom tooth surgery (1-5% of procedures), orthognathic jaw surgery (around 10%) and occasionally following local anaesthetic injections or blocks.

Commonly injured nerves include the lingual nerve which carries sensation (or feeling) from the tongue or the Inferior alveolar nerve which gives sensation to the lower lip and chin.

Symptoms can be extremely distressing for some patients, and range from anaesthesia (complete loss of feeling) to paraesthesia (altered feeling / pins and needles) or less commonly dysaesthesia (painful sensations).

How Alastair can help you with nerve repair

Alastair Fry is a highly trained microsurgeon and can help you with your symptoms. Advances in techniques have lead to improved outcomes for patients. In many cases near normal sensation can be achieved with micro surgical exploration and nerve repair.
