Oral Maxillofacial Surgery

Complex, radical surgeries performed by a world-renowned team. Our surgeons, Dr. Kademani and Dr. Patel, are known throughout the nation by both customers and colleagues for their exacting work and compassionate care when it comes to oral and throat cancers, salivary gland disease, and facial reconstruction, among other complex head and neck surgeries.

Surgery Overview

  • We have earned honors from BAOMS (British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons) for the Norman Rowe Clinical Prize in 2017 for Dr. Matthew Idle, and the Members Prize in 2006 for Dr. Deepak Kademani. We’ve also been the recipients of the North Memorial Research Development Award in 2017 for Dr. Scott Claiborne, Dr. Deepak Kademani, and Dr. Betty Pakzad. We also often top the top docs issues of Minnesota Monthly magazine, among many other prestigious awards.
  • Doctors Kademani and Patel are not only known for their face, head, and neck surgical expertise, but also their teaching abilities. They work with fellows to pass along the crucial knowledge needed to replicate these surgeries elsewhere.
  • We use navigation technology, which gives us an unmatched look inside the smallest spaces for the most precise, accurate work.
  • Because these surgeries are often so complex, we use a team approach and work as an across medical disciplines whenever needed.
  • We are the region’s only fellowship training program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.
  • Our surgeons perform the ultra-complex surgeries for later-stage and end-stage head and neck cancers when many others won’t.
  • We are a partner in the Inspire hypoglossal nerve stimulator for obstructive sleep apnea.
