Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Shakeel Akhtar at Spire include:
I have been a Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for 18-years. I specialise in the diagnosis and management of head and neck cancers. I provide a comprehensive service in orofacial reconstructive surgery including microvascular free tissue transfer.
While providing a comprehensive service in oral cancer and reconstructive surgery I also provide a service in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The services provided include removal of teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, orthodontic extractions, removal of cysts in the jaw and apicectomies. I also carry out oral medicine (diagnosis and management of oral lumps, diseases of the oral lining and mouth ulcers and diagnosis and management of facial pain, which includes temporomandibular joint dysfunction).
I provide a surgical service for dental implants (dental implant placement, bone grafting and sinus lifting) with the restorative treatment being carried out by experienced dentists whom i work alongside. I also provide a non-surgical facial cosmetic service which includes anti wrinkle injections with Botulinum Toxin (also for headaches, hyperhidrosis etc) and dermal fillers.
In my experience of oral and maxillofacial surgery for over 25 years I have carried out approximately 1,000 wisdom tooth removal and hundreds of other minor oral surgery procedures. I currently see up to 50 new cancer patients a year many of which require major surgery.
I am Clinical Director in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. I also sit on the Specialist Training Committee in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
