Cleft Lip & Cleft Lip Repair

Living with a cleft lip can be very difficult for a child. That is why our plastic and reconstruction team is specially trained to work with children and their parents or caregivers. Each child will receive the compassionate, individual attention they, and you, need to treat the condition. It is also important to know that most babies born with a cleft are otherwise healthy with no other birth abnormalities.

The difficulties of a cleft lip can involve trouble feeding, ear infections, and speech and language delay among others. University of Utah Health takes a team approach to this challenge gathering specialists from a pediatrician and plastic surgeon to a speech pathologist and ear, nose, and throat specialist. Each team works to provide the most far-reaching, quality care possible for your child and you.
