The Craniofacial Center at Goryeb Children's Hospital takes a team approach to evaluating and treating patients with a wide variety of congenital or acquired craniofacial conditions.
Infants, children and adolescents with craniofacial anomalies have complex problems related to facial appearance, feeding and swallowing, hearing and middle ear infections, speech and breathing, dental and oral-maxillofacial development, and psychosocial development. At the Craniofacial Center, a team of specialists from a variety of disciplines collaborate to identify the multifaceted needs of the patient and provide appropriate treatment following guidelines established by The American Cleft Palate ' Craniofacial Association (ACPCA).
We strive to provide both immediate and long-term medical care that improves the health and appearance of our patients, while helping their families with emotional support and education. Results of evaluations and treatment recommendations are communicated to the patient's primary care physician.
