Our multidisciplinary team consists of neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, orthodontists, speech pathologists and pediatricians. While we have a full range of specialists ready to treat patients, we customize a plan of care for each child and enlist the help of the specialists needed in each case. The experts in the Craniofacial Program provide complete care from the time of diagnosis through surgery and beyond. It is important to continue care through follow up appointments to ensure patients thrive well into the future.
The Craniofacial Program at Texas Children’s Hospital is dedicated to treating children with facial, jaw and skull abnormalities in a family-centered environment.
Conditions we treat
We treat complex conditions like craniosynostosis, Apert and Crouzon syndromes, and Treacher Collins syndrome. Most patients in the craniofacial program are infants and toddlers, but our experts are trained to care for children from birth to age 19. Learn more about the conditions treated in the Craniofacial Program.
We are actively focused on research that will help us treat our patients. Dr. Laura Monson, plastic surgeon, Craniofacial Program team member and 2012-2013 Texas Children’s Hospital Auxiliary Fellowship recipient, is currently studying the short- and long-term outcomes of patients with cleft lip and palate. Dr. David Kechoyan is leading a project to study how a sophisticated, 5-camera 3DMD system will help improve surgical planning, outcomes and communication between doctors and their patients. Learn more about our ongoing research.
