Cleft and Craniofacial Center

Cleft and craniofacial anomalies are among the most common congenital defect conditions in the United States. Children with clefts may have multiple problems which require different specialists during the course of treatment. Carilion Clinic’s Cleft and Craniofacial Center team is dedicated to treating children with conditions that range from minor to the most complex.

Our multidisciplinary team works together to carefully coordinate the procedures for each child to maximize the desired outcome and limit the number of operations needed. Once your child’s condition is diagnosed, our team will develop an individualized plan based on the ideal time to do each repair and your child’s growth and development. This team approach not only provides optimal care for your child, but it also includes family, social, emotional, psychological, and educational needs.
