- Skull anomalies and asymmetries
We evaluate and treat all types of abnormal head shapes and provide a full range of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options.
Plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and geneticists use the latest techniques and minimally invasive surgeries to treat patients with fused skull sutures.
- Ear deformities/microtia
We offer reconstructive surgery options for the full range of potential ear deformities, from protruding ears to partial or complete absence of ears. Our team also provides molding shortly after birth and surgical solutions later in life.
- Facial asymmetries/ underdevelopment and hemifacial microsomia
We treat all types of facial asymmetry and perform bony and soft tissue surgery to gain symmetry, including fat transfer and microsurgery.
- Malocclusions/jaw anomalies
We work with your child’s orthodontist to perform jaw surgery to correct overbite, underbite, small chin, and gummy smile.
- Pierre Robin sequence
Our collaborative approach includes pediatricians, otolaryngologists, and plastic surgeons. The patient’s care plan is developed after evaluation of the airway and other systems. Surgical treatment, such as jaw distraction, is sometimes part of the care plan.
- Traumatic deformities of the faceand skull
Dental craniofacial surgical expertise to treat facial and head injuries. From jaw surgery to augmentation with facial implants or fat.
Craniofacial syndromes such as Apert’s, Crouzon’s, Goldenhar’s, and Treacher-Collins.
- Tumors of the craniomaxillofacial skeleton
From oral and jaw pathology to skull and cranial base tumors.
- Vascular anomalies
All types of vascular anomalies from hemangiomas to vascular malformations through medical, interventional, and surgical therapies.
