Plastic Surgery Department
Our surgeons work with specialists throughout Phoenix Children’s to treat patients with conditions that benefit from plastic and reconstructive surgery. We make it a priority to provide individualized care to improve the function and appearance for pediatric patients with these conditions.
For patients with craniofacial anomalies, we enlist a full team of specialists. This ensures any issues that may arise during surgery are expertly managed. This team includes:
- Plastic/craniofacial surgeon
- Pediatric dentist
- Feeding, speech and language specialist
- Hear, nose and throat specialist
- Genetic counselor
- Team coordinator
Many craniofacial conditions can be detected on ultrasounds during pregnancy. If you receive this diagnosis, our plastic surgeons will meet with you and guide other team consultations to discuss care and treatment plans before the baby is born.
Support after surgery
We like to think of ourselves as “home base” for our patients with cleft and craniofacial anomalies. Before, during and after surgery, we’re here to give loved ones resources on education, information and support groups.
