Due to the unique nature of surgery for a child, many of the pediatric plastic surgery services are managed through a multi-disciplinary team approach. Before, during, and after the plastic surgery journey, you and your child may see some or many of the following specialists:
- Ear, nose, and throat doctors
- Genetic counselors
- Hearing specialists
- Pediatric plastic surgeons
- Social workers
- Speech and language specialists
We know that children should not be cared for as “small” adults. Our surgeons who perform pediatric plastic surgery procedures receive specialized pediatric surgical training, beyond the standard plastic and reconstructive residency training.
Some examples of conditions that we frequently treat include:
- Cleft lip/palate
- Webbed fingers (fingers that are joined toghether at birth)
Who is a Candidate?
Our team is highly experienced in performing plastic surgery for children with congenital (present at birth) and acquired (developed over time) defects involving the face, ear, jaw, skull, chest, arms, hands, feet, and legs.
What to Expect
You can rest assured that our team will treat you and your child with the utmost professionalism, care, and respect.
