Choosing a Craniofacial Team
Many health centers across the country are qualified to treat cleft and craniofacial disorders, but not all offer a multidisciplinary team that can care for the variety of related issues that can occur. At CHOC, we not only have a uniquely comprehensive team, we also offer easy coordination with every specialist including scheduling, communication and follow-up treatments. We always work closely with families to carry out a plan that is sensitive to a child’s needs.
Our multidisciplinary team includes:
At the close of every team clinic session, the entire craniofacial team gathers to discuss each patient and aspect of his or her treatment. From there, our program coordinator maps out a plan for families and stays in close communication to ensure a seamless experience from start to finish. Our program coordinator serves as a point of contact to answer any questions and acts as an advocate for families along the way.
Through our membership with the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association, we also offer access to educational resources regarding treatment and support issues.
