Treatment of patients

Surgical treatment is only a part of cleft care. Other medical disciplines such as orthodontics, speech therapy, genetics and others are important in order to organize a total cleft care.

Training local surgeons

may have hearing, speech, and feeding problems beside facial growth disturbances and last but not least a scarred soul that reflects their facial disfiguration.

All these can be avoided, if the care is focused in a well-structured, dedicated and professional center.
