Cleft and Craniofacial Treatment

Craniofacial abnormalities can occur as a result of disease, trauma, or while a fetus develops during pregnancy. These cases are treated by highly skilled surgeons to ensure patients experience an increased quality of life while achieving the most aesthetically pleasing results. This includes cleft lips and cleft palates, craniofacial anomalies which create a gap in an infant's lip or roof of the mouth. Dr. Galea is a specially trained and recognized expert at treating these conditions and more for pediatric and adult patients.
