Procedures for Children
Many children are born with conditions that parents may initially find alarming, but which are largely easily treated, and corrective surgery can significantly improve their quality of life in most cases. When children require plastic surgery, most often related to a birth defect, we treat them with the gentle, nurturing compassion they deserve.
Some of the pediatric conditions we treat are:
- Dermoid cysts
- Congenital nevi (moles/birthmarks)
- Syndactyly (fingers fused together)
- Polydactlyly (too many fingers)
- Cleft lip
- Cleft palate
We also do evaluations for plagiocephaly helmets (to help correct flattening of head in infants).
If you would like to consult with our practice about your child’s surgical needs, please contact us at 413-584-0044.
