Cleft and Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic Team

In the Cleft and Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic at UW Health in Madison, Wisconsin, each team member focuses on individual aspects of problems related to craniofacial birth defects.
 
The entire team works to provide comprehensive proactive care of children with facial birth defects from birth until adulthood. In addition, if ultrasound diagnosis of cleft or other craniofacial abnormality is noted during pregnancy, we provide prenatal consultation and support to expectant parents.
