Khalid Abdel-Galil


AbstractAbstractThis review aims to examine and present the current state of development of some of the recent advances in surgical techniques and associated technologies within the field of oral & maxillofacial surgery. The topics covered include minimally invasive techniques, image-guided surgery, advances in biomaterials, distraction techniques, and the use of free tissue transfer for head and neck reconstruction
