A cleft lip is a type of malformation that affects millions of children worldwide. Cleft lip repair surgery can correct mild to severe cases of cleft lip in patients of all ages, especially younger children. Early diagnosis and treatment of this condition can result in higher confidence levels, speech correction, and dental restoration.
Cleft Palate Repair
Cleft palate refers to a condition that causes a gap or cleft in the roof of the mouth. This condition is treated through cleft palate repair surgery, which improves both the aesthetic and functional elements of the mouth. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, some patients may require multiple interventions to produce optimal results.
Ear Reconstruction for Microtia
Children with microtia may have malformations in one or both ears. Ear reconstruction for microtia can help repair the appearance of small, misshapen ears and improve many of the symptoms associated with this condition. After microtia surgery, patients can experience better hearing, improvement in speech development, and significant correction of ear deformities.
Patients that have experienced traumas to the face or want to alter the shape of their nose can opt for nasal reconstruction surgery. This procedure can improve the shape, size, and projection of the nose. Furthermore, this procedure can correct functional elements and improve the ability to breathe.
Endoscopic Craniectomy for Craniosynostosis
Craniosynostosis symptoms can range from mild to severe. If addressed early on, this condition can be corrected through endoscopic craniectomy surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon employs an endoscope to reshape malformed areas and create a more acceptable appearance.
Repair of Frontoencephalocele
Babies that have frontoencephalocele can develop a protruding sac-like formation in the front of the head. Frontoencephalocele repair surgery can help place all the fluids and tissues back in the skull. The surgeon then closes the opening in order to prevent the sac-like formation from appearing again.
Treatment of Hydrocephalus
Hydrocephalus is a condition where liquid accumulates in the brain and it usually occurs in younger children. There are different hydrocephalus treatment options available, but the best option will depend on the patient’s specific case. To find the best alternative, it’s important to consult with a board-certified specialist with a proven track record.
Free Flap Microsurgical Reconstruction
Free flap microsurgical reconstruction requires the transplantation of tissue from a donor to a recipient site. Microsurgical reconstructions can be performed in different parts of the body, like the head, neck, and toes. These procedures need to be personalized to be successful and require a high degree of technical skill.
