Namaste and Greetings!!
Every year, nearly 7 lakhs (7,00,000) new cases of cancer are detected and treated at various centers across India. 4 out of 10 of these patients, i.e. approximately 40%, suffer from oral and maxillofacial cancers affecting the jaws, tongue, cheeks, lips, nose, eye and other facial parts.
After surgery, these patients require prosthetic or artificial replacements of the missing body part(s) to improve basic functions like eating, drinking, swallowing, & speaking; and to improve their facial appearance.
Such prosthetic replacements are done in Maxillofacial Prosthetics.
In India, a large majority of such patients do not receive post-surgical prosthetic care due to the lack or paucity of:
Treatment facilities providing maxillofacial prosthetic services
Medical-grade materials of international quality
Laboratory services in maxillofacial prosthetics or anaplastology
Hands on training in fundamental aspects of maxillofacial prosthetics
MAXFACINDIA is an organization which aims to overcome these problems. We have:
Established a state-of-the-art Maxillofacial Prosthetic Treatment Facility at Dantay Dental Clinic, Pune for patients at subsidized costs.
Partnered with Technovent Ltd., UK to ensure medical-grade silicone materials are available in India to all.
Established a fully equipped Silicone Laboratory to support clinicians.
Developed a range of Hands on Training Courses in maxillofacial prosthetics to be conducted at Dudani Education Center (DEC), Pune.
We request and look forward to India’s support in ensuring that patients receive better quality prosthetic services after life-changing surgery.
