Children diagnosed with craniofacial anomalies face a variety of challenges as they grow and develop. The team approach ensures that your child's care is coordinated among all of the specialists involved. By providing an interdisciplinary approach to care, your child's team is able to thoroughly assess individual needs, and continually re-evaluate those needs over time. Be sure to obtain the necessary referrals for your child's care from the center you are working with.
Dr. Maurice and his team have assembled some helpful information for patients and families on what to expect when feeding your cleft affected child, details about what to expect at the time of surgery and some general information and a welcome from our Medical Director, Dr. Maurice..
