Pediatric Plastic Surgery is the evaluation, management and treatment of cogential and acquired pedidatric deformities. This relates to a large number of diagnosis literally from head to toe.
These diagnosis include such things deformities of the craniofacial skeleton such as plagiocephaly and synostosis and other well recognized deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate and all their related problems. We also address birth defects such as large birthmarks, both pigmented and vascular (such as hemangioma). We also address congenital deformities of the hands, feet and extremities such as syndactyly, polydactyly and amniotic band deformities to name a few. This is by no means a complete list.
In addition to the congenital defomrities (those present at birth) we take care of traumatic deformities such as facial fractures, facial lacerations and countless other unfortunate events.
