The mission of the Cleft and Craniofacial Team at Children’s Health℠ is to provide comprehensive care for patients with cleft lip and palate and craniofacial anomalies. Team care includes a collaborative evaluation and treatment planning by all of the specialists that will be active in caring for the patient throughout his/her childhood.
Proud to be ACPA-designated
The ACPA defines that the purpose of the Cleft and Craniofacial Team “is to ensure that care is provided in a coordinated and consistent manner with the proper sequencing of evaluations and treatments within the framework of the patient’s overall developmental, medical and psychological needs.” The Cleft and Craniofacial Team at Children’s Health is proud to be an ACPA-designated team.
Before & After Photos
Craniosynostosis is not the most common cause of an abnormal head shape. The most common cause by far is called positional or deformational plagiocephaly (play-GEE-oh-sef-alee). To read about these conditions or see examples of different surgeries, view our before and after photo galleries.
Broad Range of Specialists
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.
Craniofacial Surgery Locations
Patients are seen for surgeries at our Children’s Medical Center Dallas and Children’s Medical Center Plano locations. Evaluations and follow-up appointments take place at the Dallas and Plano campuses, as well as at the Specialty Center Southlake location.
