The experts in our cleft and craniofacial center provide the full range of treatment, counseling, and support. In many cases, your child will need specialized care to ensure their speech, hearing, sleeping, and feeding develop appropriately. Sometimes emotional and psychosocial issues arise. Your child’s care may include medical and surgical evaluations, genetic testing, hearing and speech therapy, dental and orthodontic treatment, psychological support, and much more.
We Are with Your Child from Infancy Through Adulthood
Sometimes your child’s care begins in infancy and continues through young adulthood. Of course, every child’s needs are unique. Our craniofacial team is prepared to help you and your family through every stage of your child’s care.
Your Child’s Medical Team
In addition to pediatric plastic surgeons who specialize in craniofacial surgery, your child’s core medical team may include craniofacial orthodontists; ear, nose, and throat doctors (otolaryngologists); speech pathologists and audiologists; and a clinical social worker. Children may also need to consult with other specialties who are connected to our team such as medical geneticists, dentists, psychologists, pediatric ophthalmologists, cardiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, and dermatologists. We work together to provide comprehensive care.
