Today a family arrived for evaluation and their son was added to the schedule and had his cleft palate repaired.
Cleft palate is when the top of the mouth isn’t closed over.
There are a number of children with ptosis who cannot raise their eyelids and have to tilt their heads backward to see. The corrective surgery involves transplanting pieces of tendon that attach above the eyebrows.
Waking up after surgery can be difficult for the toddlers. The child-sized hammocks are very comforting places to sleep afterwards.
