Conditions

From the beginning of care, through treatment, and into recovery, we provide an experience that’s right for children and families. Children’s National Health System provides a wide range of clinical services and specialties dedicated to improving children’s health.

Cleft lip and cleft palate are birth abnormalities of the mouth and lip. In the United States, nearly 6,800 babies are born with oral-facial clefts annually.
