Dr. DeForge will come directly to the phone, if you call, to discuss this breakthrough surgery, StomaSurg➽, the only oral surgery treatment to date that COMPLETELY removes Gingivostomatits in the cat.
What is StomaSurg➽?
Dr. DeForge's breakthrough surgery has three components:
1] Biopsy to confirm Gingivostomatitis is present
2] Intraoral Radiology to review bone pathology present
3] Radiosurgery, Osteoplasty, and Guided Bone Regeneration Treatment of pathological bone sites
Gingivostomatis is THE MOST Painful Oral Disease in Cats
Gingivostomatitis is NOT a dental disease it is a bone centered pathology!
Dr. DeForge can treat any cat that has all of the teeth removed, i.e. edentulous, with no successful resolution of the stomatitis state........ and completely return the patient to a pain free quality of life with StomaSurg➽
Radiosurgery is utilized to create full thickness mucoperiosteal surgical flaps and to expose the diseased bone
- Oral radiology identifies the osseous pathology
- Osteoplasty is aggressive and is utilized to remove all diseased osseous tissue after PDL Nerve blocks
- Guided Bone Regeneration with bone alloplast is utilized to create a bone matrix that allows osteoblasts to reconstruct the alveolar ridge and reconstitute the bone
Pre-Anesthesia testing and Clearance for Anesthesia is
completed by the referring FDVM; LDVM; or RDVM
Some patients will need esophagostomy tubes for alimentation if presented in the advanced cachexia state
All cats return to a pain free quality of life after StomaSurg➽
Pre-Surigcal Consultation is fully credited to StomaSurg➽ surgical fees if you decide to have your cat treated with StomaSurg➽ after consultation with Dr. DeForge
