Cleft Lip/Palate

A common craniofacial defect in which the upper lip and nose form incorrectly during embryonic development. In antiquity, this condition was referred to as "hare lip". Clefts cause disfigurement and misalignment of the jaws. Fortunately, in this country, almost no children are allowed to grow with this condition untreated, despite the fact that it occurs as commonly as 1 in 700 births. Dr. Groh is proud to be the co-founder of the esteemed Craniofacial Center at Miami Children's Hospital, which specifically helps children with this problem.
