Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate – Treatment

February 10, 2022


Patients with cleft palate typically do require surgery. The only exceptions to this are patients who have the most insignificant type of clefts like a bifid uvula. That’s when the little dangling piece in the back of your throat doesn’t completely come together. That doesn’t need to be operated on, however, patients who do have other clefts do need to have them treated, uh, for proper swallowing function, vocal function, and improvement of overall hearing.
