The Transformation Of A Child Born With A Cleft Lip

Cleft lip and cleft palate comprise the fourth most common birth defect in the United States. One of every 700 newborns is affected by cleft lip and/or cleft palate. The transformation of this child born with a cleft lip, to a complete restoration of her face, will be updated weekly until full transformation is complete.
The fine surgeons and staff at St. Peters are the ones performing this service, in New Brunswick, NJ. If you need additional information, please contact them at (732) 745-8600. The regional Craniofacial-Neurosurgical Center provides treatment for babies born with craniofacial abnormalities, including cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Children with facial deformities experience difficulties that surgery alone cannot correct. In light of this, Saint Peterís has assembled a team of specialists from ten medical disciplines to ensure that the physical and emotional needs of these special children are met. * St.Peters Hospital is not affiliated with this site, for informational use only!
