For Distraction Osteogenesis of the Facial Skeleton, Dr. Bell, a prime mover in oral and maxillofacial surgery, collected contributions from visionaries and pioneers in the field making an impact on oral and craniomaxillofacial surgery around the globe.

The focus of the text is the treatment of patients with dentofacial and craniomaxillofacial deformities, which cannot be corrected by immediate repositioning of the facial bones. The work of the international contributors is described in extensive photographs and medical illustrations.
