Cleft and Craniofacial Services in Hillsborough County
Craniofacial anomalies are congenital (meaning present at birth) or acquired abnormalities of the head and neck.
Cleft lip and palate are among the most common that we treat. It occurs when the bones and tissues that form the nose, lip and roof of the mouth do not form properly while the baby is in utero. Children may be born with clefts that affect their lip, palate or both.
Craniosynostosis is also among the more common craniofacial anomalies we treat. It occurs when the bones of a baby’s skull fuse too early before the brain has fully developed. As the brain continues to develop, this causes the skull to become misshapen.
Our patients receive care for the full range of cleft and craniofacial disorders at Outpatient Care, Tampa, including:
- Cleft lip and palate
- Syndromic craniosynostosis (Apert, Crouzon, Pfeiffer, Muenke, Saethre-Chotzen, etc.)
- Hemifacial microsomia
- Orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery)
- Facial nerve palsy
- Pierre Robin Sequence
- Treacher Collins syndrome, Nager syndrome and Miller syndrome
- Frontonasal dysplasia, craniofrontonasal dysplasia and Tessier clefts
- Rhinoplasty and septoplasty
- Neonatal ear molding/otoplasty
