When it comes to your child, only the best care will do. At Stony Brook Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery our experienced surgeons are trained to execute the most delicate of procedures.
Craniofacial surgery is a form of surgery used to correct acquired or congenital deformities of the face, head, jaws, and skull. Craniofacial reconstruction is a series of procedures used to repair or reshape the face, head, jaws, or skull due to birth defects or traumatic injury. These complex areas affect how your children can breathe, chew, how they hear, swallow and even how they see. The right care at the right time can improve your child's outcome, development and overall quality of life.
