Genetic (congenital) anomalies such as a cleft lip and/or palate can cause stress to the parents of children born with this disorder. Fortunately, there are excellent treatment options available today and many centers have multi-disciplinary teams to help families understand and arrange the care of their child.
Depending on the type and severity of the cleft lip and/or palate, further testing such as genetic testing and nasal endoscopy may be indicated. In addition, evaluation and treatment by a speech therapist, orthodontist, and otolaryngologist may be also be needed.
Surgeons with special training in Craniofacial Surgery such as Dr. Williams are instrumental in the surgical correction of such anomalies. Surgeries are well-planned and often performed in stages to allow the child’s facial structures to develop through the correction process.
