Comprehensive Cleft and Craniofacial Care

Comprehensive Cleft and Craniofacial Care

The Texas Cleft-Craniofacial Team offers a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach for patients with cleft and craniofacial conditions.

Utilizing the latest advancements in surgical care, our physicians specialize in compassionate, personalized, and comprehensive treatment plans. We offer a team approach that provides the patient and their family complete care guided by standards set by the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA).

How we can help

Cleft and craniofacial conditions can be diagnosed both prior to and following birth. Treatment options are tailored to each individual based on the diagnosis and complexity of the condition. We coordinate care for our patients and their families, so they are able to visit with multiple physicians in one visit. This can include experts who specialize in dentistry, orthodontics, ear, nose, and throat, genetics, speech pathology, and plastic surgery.
