Specialized Pediatric Surgery
Cleft Lip and Palate
Cleft Lip and Palate
Improper development of a baby during the mother’s pregnancy can result in birth defects of the child’s upper lip (cleft lip) or mouth (cleft palate). Repairing these orofacial clefts within 12-18 months after birth can significantly improve their facial appearance as well as hearing, breathing, and speech development.
A child suffering with tongue tie or lip tie means the tissue that tethers the upper lip or the tongue to the mouth is too restrictive, causing functional and aesthetic issues. A frenectomy removes these tissues to allow for proper movement of the lip or tongue.
