Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP) Orthognathics

Virtual Surgical Planning provides data in order to accurately plan surgery in a computerized, digital atmosphere, with customized 3D printed surgical tools and guides. Then takes both the VSP knowledge and surgical tools to the physical surgical operation with the results of advanced outcomes. It is a more precise, automatically based surgical simulation method.

Dr. Kumar is a leader in the field of VSP and uses state of the art equipment along with VSP to treat patients diagnosed with Craniofacial Microsomia (CFM), also known as Hemifacial Microsomia. CFM describes a vast array of abnormalities that affect the skull's development before birth. Individuals with this possess a facial anatomy of reduced growth, resulting in various degrees of craniofacial asymmetry that only progresses over time.
