Craniofacial deformities are rare, complex medical conditions and should only be managed by a team of professionals with extensive experience. We start by undertaking a comprehensive craniofacial assessment in the various LCU clinics (Ophthalmology, ENT, Genetics clinic etc).
Some patients may only be required to attend 2 or 3 of these clinics for this assessment depending on their diagnosis. At the end of these assessments, a comprehensive report is put together highlighting the various issues involved. We would then discuss the management plan.
Treatment options range from local measures to improve breathing, vision and other modalities to craniofacial surgery. Parents and carers are thus educated in the management of these children with craniofacial conditions.
