Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Care

At Phoenix Children’s, our highly trained team of specialists offers the widest range of treatments for infants, children and adults with cleft and craniofacial disorders — from craniosynostosis to cleft lip and cleft palate.


A Team Approach to Exceptional Cleft and Craniofacial Care

Phoenix Children’s Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Care was established more than 30 years ago as the Barrow Cleft and Craniofacial Center. Here, we help patients with facial differences navigate their care.

Our craniofacial experts focus on team-centered care for patients with cleft and craniofacial disorders. From physical appearance to emotional coping, our team ensures that you and your child get the care you need for every aspect of your child’s condition.

With our team approach to care, you have access to craniofacial experts with more than 25 years of combined experience. We understand how to treat the complexities associated with craniofacial anomalies and are sensitive to the personal nature of these conditions. We’re here to comfort you and plan for lifelong, positive results.

Guidance and Support at Every Step

Each cleft and craniofacial condition is different and requires a personalized approach. At Phoenix Children’s, we work closely with you to ensure you or your child get the most accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan.

After you or your child receives a cleft or craniofacial diagnosis, our neurosurgeons and craniofacial plastic surgeons offer one-on-one consultations with you. The goal is to provide education about the diagnosis and all care options available to you and your family.

At the Phoenix Children’s Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Care, we support:

  • New or expecting parents of a child diagnosed with cleft lip, cleft palate or other craniofacial disorder
  • Older children or adolescents with an untreated cleft or craniofacial disorder
  • Adults with a poorly repaired or untreated cleft palate disorder
