With one of the most experienced and largest teams of specialists in the nation, the craniofacial program at Children’s Mercy treats a full range of complex conditions. From craniosynostosis to more rare conditions, we provide care for the whole child from birth into adulthood.
Why Children’s Mercy
The craniofacial team at Children’s Mercy ranks among the top 3 percent nationally in patients seen per year. That volume means our experienced team of fellowship-trained, board-certified surgeons is among the national leaders in treating craniofacial conditions. We’re a certified Center for Craniofacial Surgery and the only pediatric craniofacial program in the nation with two members of the International Society for Craniofacial Surgery .
Being a part of Children’s Mercy means patients who are treated in our clinic have access to the full range of pediatric services at a nationally-ranked children’s hospital. This includes anesthesia provided by anesthesiologists who specialize in sedating children, as well as collaboration with our Fetal Health Center, genetics department, and our Level IV NICU.
Additionally, we work with psychologists and social workers to incorporate psychosocial care into your child’s treatment plan.
Our approach to care
We believe it’s important to provide families with all options for treatment and care. Craniofacial conditions can be complex and often impact multiple areas of a child’s health. This means there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We focus on each individual patient and family and are prepared to treat patients from birth to young-adulthood. We work to use the latest technology and minimally invasive procedures whenever possible.
Additionally, we work with child life, psychologists, and social workers to incorporate psychosocial care into your child’s treatment plan.
