Craniofacial Referral Guide

​​Complex Craniofacial Care for Kids

Since 1978, infants and children with oral-facial clefts and other diseases, disorders or injuries affecting the face, jaw, skull and ears have received life-changing care from the craniofacial team at Boys Town National Research Hospital.

Many craniofacial conditions can require multiple surgeries or long-term follow-up treatment as children grow and develop. In addition, there can be emotional and psychological issues for children because of differences in appearance and speech. That’s why so many families turn to the Boys Town Craniofacial Clinic… so their children can heal, thrive and reach their full potential.
