A benign tumor was found encompassing a large portion of Pablo’s chin, affecting the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) on both the right and left side of his face. Following tumor removal and jaw reconstruction, a bilateral reconstruction of his IAN was performed using Avance® Nerve Graft and AxoGuard® Nerve Connector. Post-surgery, Pablo is back to face-to-face meetings with clients and enjoying his family’s social life.
