Specialist Programs and Services
The first step in treating patients with craniofacial differences is to conduct a complete evaluation and make a diagnosis. Since each facial difference is unique, the expertise of a multidisciplinary team of various medical, surgical and rehabilitation specialists is required to develop a systematic, comprehensive treatment plan for each child.
The initial evaluation is conducted during a single appointment attended by a variety of team specialists. Following the assessment, the team members deliver a diagnosis and make recommendations regarding treatment and comprehensive/continuous care.
