Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic

We believe in providing care beyond repairing a cleft lip or cleft palate through surgery.

Our Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Clinic provides complete treatment and rehabilitation services for children with cleft lip and cleft palate.

Our experienced team treats the condition using a coordinated care approach so the right help is available at the right time.

 

What is cleft lip and cleft palate?

The conditions of cleft lip and cleft palate develop during the early months of fetal development, prior to birth.

These "cleft" defects are known to develop from a genetic or hereditary failure of bone and/or soft tissue to join together.

The clefts can involve the upper lip, hard or soft palate ("roof" of the mouth) or any combination of these.

Our Marshfield Children’s team is staffed with surgical and non-surgical experts specifically trained in the diagnosis and treatment, repair and extended rehabilitation of children before and after these defects have been corrected. Treatment often includes multiple surgical and non-surgical steps.
