The Berlin Centre for Artificial Facial Parts (BZkG) treats patients which have suffered a loss of a part of their face through accident or illness.

The BZkG is part of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of Charité -- Universitätsmedizin Berlin at both locations Campus Virchow-Klinikum and Campus Benjamin-Franklin which are directed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr. Max Heiland.

Since 1990 patients have been treated by us utilizing a team of interdisciplinary specialists. Our expertise offers optimal individual epithetical care utilizing modern reconstructive surgery and 3D techniques along with custom hand crafted epithetical treatment.

The core of the BZkG is the epithetic department which is affiliated with the clinic where each individual epithesis are prepared and fitted. The anaplastologists Kerstin Menzel and Yvonne Motzkus along with their team offer over twenty five years experience in their field.

Patients benefit from the latest developments of both medical technology and research receiving exceptional personal care. A close working relationship between surgeons and anaplastologists enables us to give patients optimal individual care.

Treatment consists of not only the restoration of facial parts; we also intensively take in consideration the psychological burden of our patients.With the care and respect afforded by our medical team, our treatment enables our patients to experience once again a sense of normality in their everyday lives.
