Cleft and Craniofacial Center

Siefert with baby patient

Each year, the Johns Hopkins Cleft and Craniofacial Center treats approximately 650 babies and children with cleft lip and palate or other craniofacial conditions. Our goal is to help our patients achieve their full potential, without being defined or limited by facial differences.

  • Our experienced team is committed to working closely with the child's community — fostering good communication with patients, their families and referring physicians. This close communication helps patients' referring doctors follow their progress during and after their care at Johns Hopkins.
