The Midland Doctors was visited by Cleft Palate Team Diaa Yousuf Muhammad And Ajaz Bashir this week. Many children with Cleft Palate issues were reviewed and treated at MDMI.

A cleft palate is when the roof of the mouth contains an opening into the nose. These disorders can result in feeding problems, speech problems, hearing problems, and frequent ear infections. Less than half the time the condition is associated with other disorders.

A cleft lip or palate can be successfully treated with surgery. This is often done in the first few months of life for cleft lip and before eighteen months for cleft palate.

Speech Therapy and dental care may also be needed. With appropriate treatment, outcomes are good
