Dr. Agnihotri's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Agnihotri "Neil Agnihotri D.M.D., M.D., F.A.C.S., has two passions – a life long love of learning and his family. Dr. Agnihotri works out of our Southside and West End offices. Having completed 14 years of school / training as well as hundreds of hours of continuing medical education, it all started at the NJIT where he completed his B.Sc. in engineering. Dr. Agnihotri first completed his bachelors in engineering then then attended New Jersey Dental School, where his interest in oral & maxillofacial surgery began. He matched into the UMDNJ 6-year integrated surgical residency, through which he obtained his doctorate of medicine and internship in general surgery. During residency, he was given the unique opportunity of participating in medical missions including trips to Ghana and Bangladesh with SmileTrain. The trips involved treating both children and adults with cleft lips and palates. These trips gave him special appreciation for patients with aesthetic, functional and social issues. He has continued his dedication to medical care around the world with ongoing mission trips, most recently to Angouman, Haiti. After completing his residency, he went on to complete a clinical fellowship in craniomaxillofacial surgery at the Posnick Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, Maryland with clinical privileges at Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Agnihotri was able to treat many patients with congenital deformities resulting from syndromes or congenital malformations to restore facial balance and enhance aesthetics. He continues to have an academic presence, with an academic appointment at Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Agnihotri is a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon, and is a fellow of two prestigious surgical societies, the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Maxillofacial and aesthetic jaw reconstructive surgery as well as cosmetic facial surgery are particular passions of his. Dr. Agnihotri utilizes 21st century technology to plan your surgery to get the best possible outcome. This involves Virtual Surgical Planning using CT scans and custom cutting guides developed by specialized software. Often, patients are back to work within two weeks.
