Overview

Craniofacial anomalies (CFA) are a diverse group of deformities in the growth of the head and facial bones.

  • These abnormalities are congenital (present at birth).
  • Some are mild and some are severe and require surgery.

A team approach to diagnosis and care

The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Boston Children's Hospital provides a team approach to the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with congenital or acquired facial deformities. If your or your child has been suffering from one of these conditions, our doctors can help.

Expert team

Our program is staffed by an experienced team of clinicians, all with specialized training in the care of children with craniofacial anomalies.

Each year we treat more than 500 patients, 250 of them new patients, making our program one of the most experienced programs of its type in the country.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them.
