Regional Craniofacial Center


At the Regional Craniofacial Center at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, a premier multidisciplinary team of pediatric specialists provides consultation, diagnosis and treatment for patients with craniofacial anomalies, as well as education and support for their family members. As part of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, clinicians representing a variety of pediatric subspecialties offer comprehensive management for the full spectrum of anomalies of the head and face including missing or underdeveloped ears and oral clefts. The mission of the Craniofacial Center is to provide quality specialized team care to children and adolescents with clefts and other congenital and/or acquired craniofacial anomalies. The Regional Craniofacial Center meets and exceeds standards set by the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association for designation as a Craniofacial Team. The team is also a member of the New Jersey Federation of Cleft-Palate Craniofacial Teams and is funded in part by the Special Child Health Services Division of the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, Special Child Health and Early Intervention Services.
