Our pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeons treat infants and children with facial birth defects like cleft lip and palate, craniosynsotosis, hemifacial microsomia, facial palsy, microtia and jaw deformities. They also treat patients with traumatic injuries and problems resulting from the treatment of cancer and other conditions.
