We are the only Pediatric Craniofacial Center in the area
The Craniofacial Center at Children’s Hospital of Georgia is the only center of our kind in Augusta’s River
Region. We are staffed by a team of specially trained surgeons and healthcare professionals
who deliver coordinated multidisciplinary care for cleft lip and palate and other
Due to the complexity of the head and face area, a team approach is the best way to
manage problems of the craniofacial skeleton and soft tissue. Our Craniofacial Center
provides the best care possible using a family-centered approach that allows you to
be part of your child’s care plan.
Pediatric Orthodontic Care
Some children might need orthodontic treatment, in addition to craniofacial surgery,
to help guide the growth and development of the face. Orthodontics treat children
with cleft or craniofacial deformities to improve the look and function of their mouth
and teeth using a long-term treatment plan that is done in phases of active treatment,
interspersed with periods of retention or no treatment will be necessary.
Patients First is our philosophy
Patient-and-Family-Centered Care is key when it comes to our patients. We do everything
to make your child’s stay with us as comfortable and positive an experience as possible.
When your child is having surgery with us, families have access to convenient housing
locations such as Ronald McDonald House so parents can be close by for surgery and
through recovery. Located conveniently across the street, Ronald McDonald House helps
families be together throughout the entire clinical experience.
