About the Craniofacial Center
Seattle Children's Craniofacial Center
The Craniofacial Center specializes in the treatment of cleft lip and palate, craniosynostosis, craniofacial microsomia and other complex craniofacial conditions.
Under the leadership of Dr. Michael Cunningham, medical director, and Dr. Richard Hopper, surgical director, the center has become one of the largest programs of its kind in the country and one of the busiest clinics in the hospital.
Our multidisciplinary team provides diagnosis and long-term management for children with craniofacial abnormalities. We have a comprehensive craniofacial team of over 50 healthcare providers from 19 specialty areas, dedicated to providing all aspects of care to children with craniofacial conditions.
Each child is assigned a craniofacial pediatrician who coordinates the care provided by the other team specialists and tailors a plan to each child's needs.
Surgical techniques developed by our craniofacial surgeons are revolutionizing the way craniofacial surgery is done all over the world.
These innovative procedures enable doctors to address even the most serious and complex craniofacial abnormalities and provide the benefits of improved health and a more normal appearance for an increasing number of children.
