  • Dr. Rogers-Vizena completed her Plastic Surgery training at the University of Wisconsin followed by a Craniofacial surgery fellowship here at Boston Children’s Hospital. She has been involved in cleft lip and palate research for nearly a decade, beginning with a research fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. Her current research parallels her clinical interests, with an emphasis on Robin Sequence and Cleft Lip and Palate. She remains passionate about general pediatric plastic surgery and offers a variety of clinical services, with a special emphasis on patient and family centered care. Outside of the office, Dr. Rogers-Vizena maintains an active, leadership role in the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons.
