Craniofacial and maxillofacial surgery is surgery of the face, jaw, palate and skull. Surgery can help a wide variety of congenital disorders and other problems by reconstructing the missing or damaged skeleton, correcting deformities of the skull, closing the palate and rebuilding facial features. This type of surgery has a goal of improving appearance while also ensuring good function of the face, jaw and skull.

Our team is comprised of experts from several pediatric specialties, including pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeons, neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat specialists), ophthalmologists (eye doctors), dentists, geneticists, speech and language therapists, mental health experts and radiologists.
