IN A NUTSHELL
What if modern visualization and manufacturing tools could help create better and more affordable prosthetics, including replacement faces?
As a maxillofacial prosthodontist, Sujey Morgan creates facial prostheses for those who have endured traumatic experiences, such as skin cancer, accidents and birth defects. Not only does Sujey help patients regain vital functions such as chewing, swallowing and speech, but she also restores a sense of self by building new noses and replacing missing ears. Sujey received her dental degree in her native Colombia. While furthering her dental education in the USA, she studied art welding in Denver. The artistic endeavor would prove useful as Sujey learned the meticulous detail, creativity, and patience required to recreate human facial features during a fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Sujey shares her love for helping others heal by teaching at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and directing the maxillofacial prosthodontics clinic. She is also listed as a provider for patients seeking treatment through the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias.
