Children’s Craniofacial Services
Children born with craniofacial anomalies, deformities involving the growth of head and face bones, are not alone as they face the future. They have the support of the pediatric craniofacial specialists at Batson Children’s Hospital on their side.
Children’s of Mississippi’s experts from 20-plus subspecialties come together to provide compassionate and comprehensive care for these young patients who often have multiple health problems related to their congenital irregularities, which can vary from mild to severe. More than 300 patients usually seek help from the pediatric craniofacial program each year with treatment needs ranging from minor to extremely complex.
Specialty areas include plastic surgery, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, dentistry, orthodontics, speech pathology, audiology, genetics, psychology, social work, pediatrics, nursing, radiology, anesthesiology, feeding therapy and nutrition.
A care coordinator works with the multidisciplinary team to ensure that patients (children, adolescents or young adults) receive all the necessary medical, physical and psychosocial attention they require. Surgery schedules are arranged to put the child under as little stress as possible.
Health care providers work toward common goals for each patient, including:
Surgical repair of the defect
Optimal speech, language, hearing, developmental and cognitive skills
Proper dental alignment, occlusion and oral health
Social and emotional health
Conditions we treat
Defects of the face and skull include, but are not limited to:
Cleft lip and palate
Pierre Robin syndrome
Acquired defects from trauma or tumors

Cleft and Craniofacial Center
The Cleft and Craniofacial Center provides families and patients with comprehensive information about facial birth differences, facial deformities due to trauma and facial defects due to tumors. This information leads to better understanding of and participation in the treatment plan chosen. We provide the professional expertise and dedication necessary to accomplish that plan with a minimum number of surgical procedures.
Our team members possess specialty training far exceeding the minimum requirements for board certification. The team keeps up-to-date with advances in the field through regular continuing medical education, but does not race to adopt every new treatment trend until safety and efficacy can be assured. We regularly review our outcomes and constantly strive to improve the care we provide.
The Cleft and Craniofacial Center utilizes a team approach of comprehensive care that includes the referring physician. The patient referral process is designed to be straightforward and simple for the referring office and the patient.
