There is a strong collaboration with a very active pediatric neurosurgical service. In addition, there is a solid exposure to various types of orthognathic surgery, with or without distraction osteogenesis. There is also, through the Craniofacial Center
, an extensive experience with primary and secondary repair of cleft lip and palate deformities. Eligible applicants for the Craniofacial Plastic Surgery
