Compassionate Care for Children with Craniofacial Abnormalities

The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Cincinnati Children’s provides compassionate, comprehensive and coordinated care. Our team of leading experts treat a variety of craniofacial disorders, including cleft lip and cleft palate.

We see patients from newborn to adult with diverse needs. Our team recognizes that children and teens with craniofacial anomalies can have multiple, unique needs. We also know these needs and priorities for treatment change for your child and your family. That’s why we create individual, family-centered treatment plans for our patients, tailored to each person in efforts to achieve the best possible outcome.

Comprehensive Care

Our specialists work together as a team. We recognize that your child’s surgical plan needs to be highly individualized. We consider your child’s full history and make decisions that are based on age, severity, and medical needs that may be present.

Multidisciplinary Approach

When your child has a congenital craniofacial abnormality, the number of specialists who provide care and treatment can seem overwhelming. At our center, you won’t have to coordinate your child’s care. We guide you through the process and take care of that for you.
