Your child’s ability to eat, hear, and speak can be affected by birth defects of the head or face. While birth defects such as cleft lip or cleft palate do not generally cause physical pain, it can be distressing for any parent to see their newborn with these conditions. Fortunately, early intervention from a team of specialists can bring relief and restore your child’s face to a normal appearance.
At MedStar Health, our pediatric plastic surgery team can repair your child’s defect to help them develop and live normally. Our experienced and caring staff will be by your family’s side every step of the way to ensure a complete recovery with satisfying results.
