Our Craniofacial Program provides comprehensive, family-centered care to patients with complex craniofacial conditions from time of diagnosis through surgery and long-term care. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists has among the most experience in the country when it comes to caring for children with anomalies of the face and skull.
CHOP’s Craniofacial Program is one of the Nation’s leading treatment programs for children with both congenital and acquired anomalies of the face and skull. Founded in 1972, our team has pioneered craniofacial surgical techniques and features one of the largest and most experienced teams dedicated to evaluating and treating these complex conditions in children and adolescents.
We treat a wide variety of craniofacial conditions, including tumors, both common and rare craniofacial clefts, craniosynostosis (both isolated and as part of a syndrome), and other syndromes and disorders that have associated craniofacial malformations.
We also specialize in treating facial anomalies related to:
- Overgrowth syndromes such as Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome and hemihyperplasia
- Atrophic conditions such as Binder syndrome, complex cutis aplasia, fat atrophy, linear scleroderma and Parry-Romberg syndrome
- Craniofacial tumors such as dermoid cysts, encephalocele, fibrous dysplasia and neurofibromatosis
