A benign tumor was found on the right side of Veronica’s jaw and involved her inferior alveolar nerve (IAN). Following removal of the tumor and jaw reconstruction, her IAN was reconstructed with Avance® Nerve Graft and AxoGuard® Nerve Connector. Veronica is back to school and recently tested for her second degree black belt.
