What Are Cleft and Craniofacial Disorders?
Cleft and craniofacial disorders are abnormalities of the skull and face. Most are congenital (present at birth) and their type and severity vary widely. Some craniofacial disorders are mild while others are severe enough to require reconstructive surgery. If treated early, patients with these abnormalities can lead normal lives.
For appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up, however, these conditions require the input and involvement of a multidisciplinary team of specialists. The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Barrow Neurological Institute is committed to offering excellent diagnostic testing, treatment, inpatient care, and outpatient services for patients with craniofacial disorders.
