Introduction

Dr. Posnick with a patient. In the United States alone, there are approximately 5,000 infants born each year with special facial challenges. One in every 700 infants is born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, or other facial condition. One in every 2,000 newborns will have a skull malformation and require intracranial surgery before they reach one year of age. At any age, tumors or trauma can cause facial deformities. All these conditions can potentially be corrected through facial reconstructive surgery.
