Cleft Palate Repair

Cleft Palate Repair

Cleft palate is one of the highest-occurring birth defects in the United State each year, appearing in almost two babies out of every thousand.

While cleft palate can lead to problems with eating, teeth, speech, and hearing, it can be easily treated through reconstructive surgery. The surgeons at Meridian Plastic Surgery can close the cleft through surgery, which is typically performed on children 9 to 12 months of age.

 

I was greeted cordially and treated with upmost respect. The wait was less than 15 minutes, and I was really surprised since the waiting room was full. My visit was on Monday and on Tuesday I received the call with the good biopsy report. I will definitely not hesitate to use Dr. Thornton should the need arise in the future.
