Dr. Padwa's research interests fall within the fields of oral and maxillofacial as well as craniofacial surgery. Ongoing studies include those with a focus on evaluating facial growth in children with a host of different craniofacial anomalies. Research has ranged from rare disorders such as facial infiltrating lipomatosis and cervicofacial lymphatic malformation with associated skeletal overgrowth, to more common conditions such as cleft lip/palate and hemifacial microsomia.
