Shriners Children's Cleft Lip and Palate Care History
In 2005, the Joint Boards of Directors of Shriners Children’s and Shriners International officially added treatment of cleft lip and cleft palate to the healthcare sytem’s care disciplines. Approximately 5,000 children are born each year with deformities of the upper lip and mouth, and comprehensive long-term care for these children is often difficult to obtain. Care for cleft lip and palate is currently provided at 13 Shriners Children’s locations.
