Pediatric plastic surgeons at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital assess and treat patients with birth defects such as a cleft lip or palate, developmental abnormalities and acquired problems, including problems in both the upper and lower face and the hands.

Working with other specialists including dentists, social workers, speech pathologists, dermatologists and others, we provide comprehensive treatment for conditions that not only affect a child's appearance, but also their ability to function both physically and socially.
