Cleft and Craniofacial

Cleft and Craniofacial Team

The Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health Cleft and Craniofacial Team is a multidisciplinary network of experienced and qualified physicians and healthcare professionals coordinated through a partnership between the LSU Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, the LSU Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital. This team works together to coordinate the care of children with cleft and craniofacial disorders, and thoroughly evaluates and supports patients both physically, emotionally, and socially.

This team of specialists devises a comprehensive, individualized plan of treatment for each child. These experts will meet on a regular basis to organize the specific follow-up appointments each child will need. All recommendations made by the cleft and craniofacial team will be discussed with the parents as well as the child’s pediatrician and other specialists involved in their care.
