PATIENT INFORMATION > Treatment of cleft 

Treatment of cleft

The most important part of the cleft treatment is a qualified surgery which should take place as soon as possible after birth! Therefore, react fast and now!

If the lip and palate are affected, two surgeries are essential: The first surgery (cleft lip) at 3 to 6 months of age, the second surgery (cleft palate) at 12 months of age. Complexity and diversity of cleft can often make further treatment necessary. Additional surgeries might have to be performed during childhood and adolescence. Further, comprehensive care like dental or orthodontic treatment as well as speech therapy is often required and is also offered by QORITO.

Please find further information about all kind of surgeries and comprehensive care below. However, this website provides introductory information only! Our cleft teams will provide detailed information about the treatment.
