Cleft Lip and Palate Repair – Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nevada
In North America, cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common birth defects. Cleft lip and cleft palate can occur together or separately, but they are no longer the lifelong issues they used to be. Today they can be treated effectively, even at an early age. In fact, early treatment is recommended to allow your child to live a normal, productive life.
It is recommended that you meet with a surgeon who specializes in this type of plastic and reconstructive surgery early in your baby’s life. From this simple beginning, you can ask questions and discuss an effective treatment plan. At Murphy Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. James E. Murphy is skilled in this type of surgery and will listen to your concerns to help you develop realistic goals for both you and your child.
