In brief: ACP-CPF

The american cleft palate-craniofacial foundation has an excellent web site with information about these disorders (http://www.
Acpa-cpf.Org). Also, if there is a university hospital close to you, check there. These are usually handled through multispecialty clinics that bring a number of disciplines together to manage these patients. Good luck.

In brief: Children's hospitals

Most major metropolitan areas in the United States have a children's hospital.
It is most common for these centers to have a cleft team, as it is a multi-specialty resource that provides the most comprehensive repair.

Its best to be treated by a multidisciplinary team comprised of at least a speech therapist, plastic surgeon, dentist, oral surgeon, counselor/psychologist, orthodontist/prosthedontist to manage all aspects of this condition.

About 30% of cleft palates are part of a syndrome, like Stickler's or Velocardiofacial Syndrome, so a genetics evaluation is recommended.
