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.

Why Choose Johns Hopkins Children's Center?

  • With our medical expertise and advanced diagnostic techniques, we provide compassionate and expert care that addresses not only the physical, but also the emotional needs, of our patients and their families.
  • 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.

Cleft Lip and Palate Treatment at Johns Hopkins

After having two children with a cleft lip and a cleft palate, one Baltimore family visits Dr. Richard Redett in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to seek out treatment and ongoing care at the Johns Hopkins Cleft and Craniofacial Center.
