I am a consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon, working in London and the South East. I treat patients with problems relating to the face, jaws and teeth as well as the head and neck.

Mr Spencer Hodges is a highly regarded and experienced consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon, with a passion for treating conditions of the face, mouth, neck and jaws with precision to obtain the best aesthetic outcomes. He prides himself on achieving the highest levels of care and communication with patients.

He has extensive experience in all areas of oral and maxillofacial surgery, with a specialist interest in facial reconstruction after skin cancer removal, correcting jaw deformity, and treating head and neck lumps.

A leading surgeon in the field, Mr Hodges was a consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon at King’s College Hospital in London for over 10 years, before becoming a full time private oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

My jaw operation has given me great confidence . After being very anxious about the idea of surgery, going ahead with it has been the best decision I’ve made.  I’m glad that my teeth are now in the best possible position, in order  to give me a lifetime of better dental health. Would like to say a big thank you to my consultant surgeon and the oral surgery team for their support and care.

Last February you kindly operated on a rodent ulcer on the side of my nose. You did brilliant work on my face. After eight months, the scar is hardly noticeable. I remember you saying that within six months it would look a lot better, as I was rather distressed! My very grateful thanks – I was so lucky to have you as my surgeon.

I felt I had to write to you via email to thank you so much for your care and attention when having my recent operation to remove a rodent ulcer from my face. Your confidence lifted me as I was not looking forward to this procedure at all, but your manner and assurance was exemplary and made facing the task much easier. I can only praise you…for the treatment I received. My wife and I would once again thank you very much and wish you and your family the very best for the year ahead.
