Every year in the United States, approximately 6,000 infants are born with a facial difference that requires interdisciplinary care, including cleft lip and palate. At the Portland Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Differences, we want to be your trusted source for pediatric facial reconstructive surgical care. Our Pediatric Craniomaxillofacial Surgery specialty practice has a subspecialized team, providing state-of-the-art care for infants, children and adolescents with a variety of congenital and acquired facial conditions.
If you’re pregnant and have received a diagnosis of cleft lip, cleft palate or head shape abnormality, we offer prenatal counseling to get you the support you need. Know that you are not alone. We will be with you every step of the way. Our team provides treatment that is comprehensive, compassionate and highly personalized for children born with cleft and craniofacial differences that is aligned with the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association Parameters of Care. Our goal is to get to know you and your child so we can best meet your child’s individual needs.
