The Craniofacial Center at Seattle Children’s has experts in every field your child might need. These 50 specialists work together to diagnose and care for our patients.
Our team meets weekly to discuss children with complex needs and decide on the best care plan for each child. We work together, and with you and your family’s doctor, to manage your child’s personalized care.
A craniofacial pediatrician, nurse, family service coordinator and social worker will work closely with your family. They coordinate care and make sure all your questions are answered.
The pediatrician guides your child’s treatment and decides if other specialists are needed. Your child’s team may include a geneticist, genetic counselor, craniofacial plastic surgeon, oral-maxillofacial surgeon, ear, nose and throat specialist (otolaryngologist), eye doctor (ophthalmologist), feeding therapist, dietitian, orthodontist, audiologist and speech and language pathologist (SLP). Children with bone or joint problems will also be treated by an orthopedic doctor or a specialist in inflammatory diseases that affect joints and connective tissues (rheumatology).
