Mr.JK Thiruchelvam

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon


Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a unique speciality which combines the skills of both Medicine and Dentistry and is best placed to manage most aspects of Head and Neck pathology.

I am qualified both in Medicine and Dentistry which has allowed me to obtain extensive training in all aspects of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery including Thyroid Surgery.. I am privileged to be one of the few in this specialty to have an opportunity to do a fellowship (Super Speciality Training) in paediatric craniofacial surgery.

As a practising consultant for more than 15 years, I provide a very friendly, approachable service to all patients. I am the lead for Maxillofacial Head & Neck cancer service at Broomfield Hospital located in Chelmsford. I am fully involved in the surgical management of oral, facial skin and salivary gland cancer.  My particular interests include surgical ablation and oro-facial reconstruction, management of various neck lumps including Salivary gland diseases. I also practice surgical dentistry including jaw cysts and facial trauma.  Furthermore, I work closely with allied specialities such as ENT, Plastic surgery and Dermatology to provide comprehensive management for patients. Closely working with Dentists allows me to provide comprehensive oral surgical work including dental implants and bone grafting for oral rehabilitation.
