Choosing Our Team

Those moments after a child is born are precious. As a parent, you've been waiting to meet your perfect little bundle of joy. If your baby has a craniofacial or cleft condition, those first moments can be scary and emotional.

The craniofacial and cleft team here at Cook Children's understands your concerns. Our team specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgery for children with face, head and neck conditions that they are born with, or may acquire later due to traumatic injury, disease or developmental disorder.

We're here to help you learn about your child's condition and the treatment options that can help your child have a bright future.

Focusing on your child

When you choose Cook Children's, you get more than a kid-friendly specialty, you get a kid-only specialty. Plus, you'll have access to an entire network of care designed to support you, your child and your family throughout your child's care.
