Craniofacial disorders

Children's Wisconsin is one of the leading pediatric hospitals in the country for diagnosis, research and treatment of craniofacial disorders.

At Children's Wisconsin, we treat our patients like we'd treat a member of our own family. When you trust your child's care to us, you can expect care that is:

  • Competent
  • Comprehensive
  • Compassionate
  • Experienced
  • Family-centered

Our care often begins even before your baby is born

The Craniofacial staff at Children's provide comprehensive care to children with common and complex craniofacial disorders and plastic surgery needs. We are available to meet with you before your child is born if a prenatal ultrasound shows a cleft or another craniofacial disorder. And of course, we'll also meet with you after your child is born or whenever the need is identified.

We cater our care to the whole family

At Children's, we provide family-centered care because we know that a child's health affects the whole family. We believe that open communication is the foundation of a partnership with families, and invite their participation in care planning. We believe families' full participation is key to the best outcome.

Our goal is to support families by building on their strengths.

We have experience caring for children and adults

Our staff specializes in caring for children (though we also care for adults), and are all recognized as Best Doctors®. All of our doctors are board certified in plastic surgery with additional, advanced training in craniofacial surgery. The focus of the practice is on treating kids and adults with congenital defects.
