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.
Every cleft and craniofacial disorder requires diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up from an experienced team of specialists to help you get a satisfactory outcome. At Barrow, our team will work closely with you to ensure excellent diagnostic testing, treatment, inpatient care, and outpatient services for you and your family.
