Craniofacial Center

Craniofacial surgery

The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at the NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital stands at the forefront of care for children and adults with facial conditions and complex facial deformities. For more than 20 years, our team of pediatric specialists has provided surgical and medical treatment and other therapies to children with a wide range of conditions, including those caused by congenital anomalies, disease, or accidents.

The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is certified by the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) — a certification which verifies that our team has passed a rigorous review process to ensure we have all the necessary resources to support your child.

Specialized Care

We understand that children with facial conditions have complex and specialized needs. Our staff is committed to creating a treatment plan that is tailored to your child's unique needs and executing this plan at the appropriate time — considering your child's growth and development.

Family-Centered Care

In addition to having specialty trained physicians and technicians across 14 disciplines, our care team includes you and your child. Family plays a critical role in the success of these cases, that's why we ensure that you and your child's pediatrician don't just understand the comprehensive care plan, but have adequate knowledge of how the plan was devised and timed. As some cleft and craniofacial needs can continue into adulthood, we make our team accessible to adults as well. No matter what the age, we treat the patient's needs to improve their overall functioning.

Leading-Edge Care

The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is a recognized leader in the field of reconstructive surgery. Members of our team remain on the cutting-edge of research of cleft and craniofacial disorders. Through our research activities, we've developed novel treatments for speech disorders, created new techniques to stimulate and promote cranial bone formation, and conducted studies focused on the cause and treatment of hemangiomas and other vascular anomalies.
