A Future of Hope
In the United States, 7,000 children are born with a cleft lip and/or palate. Many cleft cases appear to be due to genetic or environmental factors, but many times there is no clear known cause. Children born with these craniofacial conditions face challenges that affect speech and dental and facial development, and they may require long-term care and management.
Cleft lip and palate surgery has the power to restore hope and transform the lives of those affected by congenital anomalies. Dr. Kapitan and our multidisciplinary team of specialists offer a family-centered approach to care that is compassionate, advanced, and successful. Working together with you and your family, we help our patients achieve life-changing results to restore facial aesthetics and oral function.
