Our patients

Meet Finn
Finn Pinkston is growing fast and eating the family out of house and home, but it’s not a problem for this healthy and active boy. Early in his life feeding problems were his parents' greatest worry because Finn was born with a cleft lip and palate. Read Finn's story.

Hanai familyMeet Shmuli and Ilana
Sara and Ramin Hanai noticed an odd ridge forming on the forehead of their six-month-old son. During a well-child exam, their pediatrician said it could signal a serious craniofacial disorder called craniosynostosis.
Read their story.

Patient- and family-centered care

Physical and medical issues with craniofacial surgery can be frustrating for patients and their families. These delicate procedures are very complex and can be difficult to understand. This means that talking with you and your family is critical for the best possible care. We work with you to calm your fears and help you understand your child's condition. Our staff will support you throughout the whole process, keeping you informed about what's happening and listening to your concerns.
