The effect of a visible disfigurement can be devastating for a child’s development, confidence and self-esteem, particularly when the deformity is on the face.
At Valley Children’s, our pediatric plastic surgery department treats physical disfigurement for neonates, infants, adolescents and young adults. Our surgeons specialize in the correction and management of congenital, traumatic and acquired conditions, including hand abnormalities, cleft lip and palate disorders, craniofacial and vascular anomalies. Each year, the department performs more than 1,200 plastic surgery procedures and sees over 9,000 outpatient visits.
Surgical procedures are usually done on an outpatient, day-surgery basis, which reduces stress to our young patients and encourages faster recovery time.
Emphasis on patient comfort and care is reflected in our outstanding patient and family satisfaction scores. In a recent 2017 survey, Valley Children’s plastic surgery outpatient department scored 90.6 percent on overall patient and family satisfaction.
