Many of our children are unfortunate to be born with a slit in their lip and palate. Such a defect may be noticed from birth and these defects can be closed by a series of surgeries, to restore function and also to achieve a normal appearance with minimal scarring.

This slit may affect one or both sides of the face. It can cause difficulties with feeding, swallowing (with potential for liquids or food to come out of the nose), nasal speaking voice and chronic ear infection.
