Expertly Treating Birth Defects of the Face and Head
Correcting craniofacial deformities is a delicate task that requires the skills of a highly trained surgeon.
SLUCare plastic surgeons are experts in treating complex conditions that require reshaping of the skull, face and jaws to improve both function and appearance. Most procedures are performed with the team of experts at the St. Louis Cleft-Craniofacial Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.
SLUCare Craniofacial Plastic Surgeons Treat:
- Craniosynostosis, a birth defect in which part of the skull closes prematurely
- Cleft lip and cleft palate
- Absent ear reconstruction
- Small jaw problems that may be related to genetic conditions, such as cri du chat syndrome or Pierre Robin syndrome
