Cleft Lip and Palate Program
The Cleft Lip and Palate Program at Boston Children's Hospital cares for children and adolescents with cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Seeing more than 575 patients each year, the program is one of the largest and most experienced in the world when it comes to cleft lip and/or palate diagnoses, treatment and follow up care.
Proper cleft lip and/or palate treatment often requires the skills of many specialists. Our multidisciplinary team includes plastic and oral maxillofacial surgeons, dentists, otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, psychologists, social workers and clinical geneticists with the pediatric expertise needed to get your child on the road to recovery.
In addition to patient care, our team is involved in innovative scientific research to benefit children and adolescents born with cleft lip and/or cleft palate.
