I am looking for an excellent surgeon to repair a bilateral cleft lip and palate. What should I search for?
I suggest looking at the nearest academic hospital and calling to see if they have a craniofacial team experienced in cleft lip and palate repair. The team will include the surgeon, ent, dentist, speech therapist, nurse, and social worker, all of whom will have had significant experience in treating these children and assisting their families.
In the nyc area, i recommend nyu. Best, /nsn.
