Cancellation Policy
Except for rare emergencies, we will see you or your child at the time scheduled. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please call us as soon as possible so we can offer your appointment time to another patient. If you cancel your appointment less than 24 hours in advance or do not come at the scheduled appointment time, you will be charged a $25 fee for the missed appointment. Please note that most insurance companies will not reimburse you for missed appointments, and you remain responsible for these charges.

Research and Education

In addition to maintaining an active clinical practice, the Craniomaxillofacial Surgery team also is involved in ongoing facial reconstructive surgery research. Team members actively participate in the education of residents, medical students and dental students. The division currently hosts a fellowship training program in pediatric craniomaxillofacial surgery.

We provide a broad spectrum of clinical services to children with a variety of conditions, encompassing the following:


  • In the United States, approximately 6,000 infants are born each year with facial conditions that require coordinated interdisciplinary care.
  • One in every 700 infants is born with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate.
  • One in every 2,000 newborns will have a skull malformation and require combined craniofacial/neurosurgical treatment before they reach age 1.
  • At any age, tumors and growths can cause craniofacial deformities and functional problems.
  • The management of facial injuries in children requires a unique understanding of their ongoing growth.
  • All these conditions potentially can be corrected through facial reconstructive surgery.
