Craniofacial outpatient services
The craniofacial team meets weekly in our outpatient clinic to consult with patients and their families. An appointment in this clinic is the first step to determine necessary treatment for your child. At this initial visit, your child will be seen by the craniofacial care team. When necessary, additional specialists are consulted as part of your child's care.
After a thorough evaluation of your child's physical characteristics, studies, films and genetic testing, our multidisciplinary team will develop a treatment plan that most effectivly treats your child's condition. At that time, the craniofacial team also will determine whether your child's treatment plan includes surgery, as not all patients require surgery. Patients are also seen in the craniofacial clinic for post-operative appointments and follow-up care.
