Depends!: It's going to depend on your surgeon's expertise, the hospital you choose, your disease state, your current anatomy, your surgical history, other major health issues (like kidney, heart, lung or liver disease), the medications you take (eg immunosuppressants).

I : I am so sorry that he is having to go through all of that. There is no simple answer for your question. Every surgery carries a risk as you know, including risk of infection, bleeding, and anesthesia. Morbidity and mortality also depends on the underlying condition of the patient, including other illnesses (co-morbid conditions), nutritional status, and body weight (too high or too low both carry risks). The most important thing is be sure that the patient has optimized their nutritional status, isn't smoking, and has other medical issues under control and has been cleared medically. Share all health concerns with the surgeon and anesthesiologist and be sure they are up to date with any current health issues of the patient. There are many patients who have to undergo repeat surgeries and they do well. I wish you the best through this procedure. ...Read more

Studies: I cannot speak for any doctor nor the actual figures reported. First, I do not believe there is any consensus on the figures as such studies of mortality rate for this procedure are scarce and will vary based upon who does the study, the size of the sampling, the geographic sampling, the year of the study, how the information was collected, etc. Concentrate on the need and benefit of the surgery. ...Read more

Another doctor on here said the post surgical mortality rate is 2%. That can't possibly be correct, even with cleft palate surgery right?

Procedure dependent: The risk of dying (mortality) and developing complications (morbidity) is dependent on the diagnosis, the procedure, the condition of the patient and the situation (emergent vs elective). Most elective procedures have very low mortality rates, clearly cleft palate surgery in a child without other risk factors (e.g. Cardiac defects) will be low, very low, on the order of 0.1% or less. ...Read more
