Cleft lip and palate


It is the most frequent craniofacial malformation, affecting approximately one in every 600 live-born children in our country.  


It is mainly due to genetic (hereditary) factors, although conditions such as malnutrition, drug, tobacco and alcohol use, as well as the use of certain medications during pregnancy also contribute.

With proper and timely treatment, patients can have a full recovery, and a normal integration into society.  

For the comprehensive care of patients with cleft lip and palate, an interdisciplinary team is required, which includes plastic and maxillofacial surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists, pediatricians, pediatric dentists, orthodontists, psychologists, speech therapists, among others.
