Nigel Shaun Matthews - Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon

IMG 20130804 WA0001Welcome to my website. My name is Shaun Matthews and I am a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon based in London. As a Consultant Surgeon in this specialty which involves performing surgical procedures on the mouth, jaws, face and neck, I hold both medical and dental degrees and am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, as well as being a Fellow of Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. My NHS and private practice span a range of conditions of the head and neck region and I undertake a number of approved procedures and treatments including total joint replacement, which can be life-changing surgery for patients with severe disease, degeneration and arthritis of their jaw joints.

I have developed a national and international reputation for the surgical management of temporomandibular joint (jaw joint) disorders and have undertaken national projects on TMJ arthroscopy and TMJ physiotherapy, as well as created the only TMJ multidisciplinary team clinic in the United Kingdom, for which I am the Lead Clinician.

I have written three book chapters on TMJ related conditions and over 20 peer review articles and am currently one of only two British surgeons who are invited members of both the American and European Society of TMJ Surgeons. I continue to be actively involved in research due to my academic links at Guy's and King's College Hospital and my most recent work has focussed on temporomandibular joint replacement surgery, TMJ arthroscopy and TMJ physiotherapy.

On my site, you will find information on both conditions and treatments, in addition to details of my professional credentials , experience and research interests.

If you're a patient researching any of these conditions, please feel free to make use of the information here. If you'd like to know more, please direct your GP or Dental Surgeon to my referral information.
