Dr. Hirsch was recently interviewed by several major news networks regarding a pioneering jaw surgery in the United States. A team of surgeons at NYU Langone Medical Center headed by Dr. David L. Hirsch performed cutting-edge jaw surgery on a patient with a fast-growing tumor called ameloblastoma.
After removing a large section of the patient’s jaw bone with the tumor, the surgeons then rebuilt the patient’s jaw using a section of the fibula bone. The fibula bone was then implanted with dental implants and teeth placed on the day of surgery. This was the first time the operation was ever performed in the United States. Doctors planned every step of the operation virtually on a computer to get optimal results.
Dr. Hirsch resides in New York with his wife and family where he enjoys fly-fishing and golf.
