This procedure will benefit all individuals with this condition and help them to live with confidence once again.

Dr. Shah's procedure can usually be done in the office and requires only a small incision that is hidden. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and patients are usually able to go back to work within a few days. He uses minimal local anesthesia to block specific nerves and remove the osteoma. This is a groundbreaking new operation designed to improve the quality of lives. Dr. Shah has conceived an approach designed specifically to benefit his patients.

Dr. Shah uses an endoscope to re-contour the forehead’s bone. Since the incision is made on the scalp, the face shows no visible scarring. The appearance of the forehead is improved and the skin is smoother. This makes an enormous difference in the condition of life his patients experience.

Osteoma removal usually results in an obvious coronal scar. The incisions path is at the hairline. In certain patients, the scar is obvious and the supraorbital nerve is affected which can disrupt the sensation to the scalp; such as not being able to feel any sensation when they brush their hair. The alternate approach is to directly cut the lesion. Without the medical expertise of Dr. Shah, numerous individuals would have to live with horrendous scars. 

Dr. Shah's revolutionary technique allows him to hide scarring in the scalp. The small scar is extremely difficult to see. Although this procedure is more difficult, it is minimally evasive. The swelling is limited and the recovery time is cut from that of a direct or coronial incision. Facial plastic surgeons understand procedures can be performed numerous different ways. Dr. Shah took it one step further and found a new and improved method.
