Shriners Children’s teams of specialists treat the physical, social, emotional and developmental challenges of craniofacial conditions like cleft palate to help children live full, healthy lives.
Shriners Children’s offers an innovative approach for children who need surgery on their jaw, which involves repositioning the jaws to improve the child’s bite and appearance.
Jaw deformities are an upper and/or lower jaw that is too big, too small, crooked or the wrong shape. It can affect eating, teeth development and speech. Shriners Children’s provides jaw surgery.
Shriners Children's world-renowned pediatric surgery program gives us the ability to help children who have a variety of conditions, including those they were born with, as well as those that develop over time or are the result of an injury.
Shriners Children’s provides the full spectrum of pediatric orthopedic care. It's everything from fracture care and casting for broken bones, to surgery and rehabilitation.
Virtual Surgical Planning
Shriners Children's craniofacial surgery team may use virtual surgical planning (VSP) before a child's surgery. VSP creates a model of the child's jaw, teeth or face, helping our team plan exact details for the surgery.
Limb deformities are curved, short or twisted legs or arms. Our specialists help parents understand when growth and time may heal, and when to use medical treatment.
