From cleft lip and palate to congenital ear deformities, we specialize in correcting deformities of the face and skull in children. In fact, we treat more than 500 children – ranging from newborns to young adults – each year.
Our care goes beyond addressing your child’s physical needs, but also his social and emotional needs. We time surgical reconstruction and medical interventions as part of an individualized treatment plan to restore appearance and function as quickly and effectively as possible.
The earlier treatment starts, the better in terms of reducing stress and anxiety and minimizing future health problems related to your child’s craniofacial disorder.
We care for the entire family, as well as the patient. We have a Cleft Palate Family Network support group that offers education programs, information and guidance, and activities. The activities are aimed at bringing families together to share experiences, provide reassurance and help cope with their child’s condition.
Our craniofacial coordinator will also help you access various resources, including financial assistance through the Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH), and programs and services in your local community.
