Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Hasbro Children's Hospital

The Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Hasbro Children's Hospital is made up of an interdisciplinary team that works to create the best treatment plan for each child. We know that every child with a craniofacial condition is different, and we tailor care to fit the needs of every individual patient. Our team is committed to providing the best possible care; that is why we meet monthly to see patients, allowing for consultation and coordination of care. Together, we will come up with the best treatment for your child.

You can be confident in the experience and expertise of our team. Our subspecialty surgeons have each completed fellowships in pediatric and craniomaxillofacial surgery. They specialize in the surgical treatment of congenital and acquired disorders of the face and skull, including both the soft tissue and the bones.
