what is the best treatment for cleft lip or palate?

Repair: These are complex deformities that are best repaired by a team that includes plastic surgeons, ENT surgeons, speech pathologists, orthodontists, and others. These are often found at university hospital centers and give the best options for continuing care of these patients. I would encourage you to look for one of these clinics.

Surgical repair: While there are other options other than surgery like obturators, surgery is by far the best option in children.
