Cleft and Craniofacial Conditions

The uniquely delicate nature of pediatric craniofacial deformities requires a broad range of specialists during all stages of your child’s treatment. This is why the Fogelson Plastic Surgery & Craniofacial Center provides not only plastic surgeons, but also orthodontists, dentists, psychologists, speech therapists, and others to treat our patients’ conditions from every possible angle. 

  • Cleft Lip, Palate Treatment


    Children’s Medical Center is an area leader for cleft lip and cleft palate surgery; ours is one of two American Cleft Palate - Craniofacial Association Affiliated Teams in North Texas.

    Early intervention is critical to the treatment of pediatric cleft lip and cleft palate. This is why our team prescribes a pre-surgical orthopedic appliance to infants to prepare them for the surgery they will need to repair their condition.
