Cleft Lip & Palate
Dr. Rivera Explains Treatment of Cleft Lip and Palate
Cleft lip and palate and craniofacial surgery are core components of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Our surgeons are all trained in the management of these special patients. In addition, Dr. Rivera is fellowship trained in Craniofacial Surgery and Pediatric Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and has the background necessary to provide comprehensive surgical care for patients born with clefts or facial differences from birth to adulthood.
If you have a child with a cleft or facial difference, we are happy to meet you for a consultation to address the many concerns you may have. We are also happy to set up a prenatal consultation for expecting parents with a child diagnosed with a cleft or craniofacial condition on ultrasound, and discuss an overall timeline of your child’s treatment. Our surgeons understand the trust that parents place on their child’s surgeon, and we would be honored to have this privilege.
