Craniofacial Disorders

Craniofacial disorders refer to a group of deformities of the face and head caused by abnormal growth of the skull and facial bones.
• These deformities are congenital or present at birth.
• Some cases are associated with genetics, but in many cases, the exact cause is unknown.

A craniofacial condition may also involve disfigurement caused by disease or trauma.
Your child will be carefully evaluated during the first few weeks of life to determine a long-term care plan.
• Some craniofacial deformities are mild and may require minimal treatment.
• Others may require multiple surgeries over your child's early years and into the teens.
