Each child is different, of course, but these conditions usually call for treatments from a variety of medical specialists. For parents of newborns, learning how to feed is the main focus of care. Surgery, dental needs, speech and language difficulties, hearing, or school issues may then be addressed, with the advice or expertise of our team.

We have the experience and skills to develop a treatment plan that’s right for your child. The cleft team at Children’s includes specialists in audiology, pediatric dentistry, pediatric surgery, child psychology, plastic surgery, prosthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, speech and language pathology, otolaryngology, orthodontics, and genetic counseling.

In addition, we can call upon a number of other specialists to work with your family: dietitians, geneticists, social workers, occupational therapists, pediatric neurosurgeons, and pediatric neuroradiologists.
