Oral Surgery and Facial Tumors

Many patients contact Africa Surgery with an abscessed jaw or a tumor mass around their face. They are routinely referred to Dr. Don Davis in Freetown, the only oral surgeon in Sierra Leone.

Abscesses are treated medically and surgically by removing the infection and reconstructing the jaw. When tumors prove to be operable, Dr. Davis works in conjunction with maxi-facial surgeons visiting from abroad. Malignant tumors caused by Burkitt’s Lymphoma are successfully treated with chemotherapy.

Africa Surgery has provided and paid for about 20-30 cases of Oral and Facial surgeries.
