Abstract

The multidisciplinary approach is essential to the satisfactory treatment of cleft patients. This includes surgeons, orthodontists, speech pathologists, pedodontists, prosthodontists, otolaryngologists, social workers, psychologists, as well as a photographer. All of these contribute to the care of cleft patients from infancy to adulthood. The techniques presented here are based on the experience of the members of the Chang Gung Craniofacial Center over a period of 30 years in a Chinese population. They have also been tested in other racially diverse centers. The improved outcomes result from an integrated approach with presurgical management, surgical refinements, and postsurgical maintenance.
