Craniofacial (Skull/Facial Bones) Surgery
Craniofacial surgery is a subset of plastic surgery, which focuses on the management of conditions involving the bones and soft tissues of the head and neck. These conditions may be seen at birth, result from accidents, or develop from tumors. The Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery Center at Mount Sinai has a longstanding history of excellence in patient care. Consistently, our Center is recognized as a premier center for treating children and adults with anomalies of the bones of the head and neck, including the skull, the face, and the upper and lower jaw, as well as all of the overlying soft tissues in this region.
Craniofacial conditions we treat at the Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery Center include:
- Craniosynostosis (skull anomalies)
- Craniofacial syndromes
- Ear deformities
- Eyelid deformities
- Midface deformities
Our multidisciplinary team of clinicians includes Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Developmental Pediatrics, Otolaryngology, Dentistry, Orthodontia, and numerous other specialties.
