Cleft Lip, Palate and Lip/Palate
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 the cleft lip and palate team prescribes a pre-surgical orthopedic appliance to infants to prepare them for the surgery they will need to repair their condition.
Cleft Lip, Palate and Lip/Palate Surgery Location
Patients are seen for surgeries at our Children’s Medical Center Dallas and Children’s Medical Center at Legacy campuses. Evaluations and follow-up appointments take place at the Dallas and Legacy campuses, as well as at the Specialty Care Center in Southlake.
