We are dedicated to providing children with the most complete diagnosis and treatment for a wide variety of conditions, from prenatal evaluations through adolescence. We are here to help you make the best decisions for your child's care, beginning as early as possible.

Our providers are committed to providing excellent care for all craniofacial conditions. Whether your child has a common condition such as cleft lip and palate, or a rare condition such as Crouzon syndrome, our team works together to address all medical and surgical needs your child may have.


What kind of experience does the team at OHSU have with cleft lip/palate?

We have a multidisciplinary team at OHSU with numerous subspecialists with expertise in caring for children with cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Our team includes members from various disciplines, including plastic surgery, otolaryngology, pediatrics, speech and language pathology, audiology, and psychology among others. Our team is the number one referral center in the state for children with clefs and the only team in the state recognized by the American Cleft Palate Craniosynostosis Association.

We see 60-80 new infants each year with clefts and follow them through adolescence. We are also the only team in the state to offer Nasoalveolar Molding (NAM). Our team members are dedicated to providing the most advanced care that is suited to your child's individual needs.
