Cleft Lip and Palate Services
The cleft unit at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi is the first and the only unit in Kerala that provides comprehensive management for children with cleft lip and palate. The team consists of a craniomaxillofacial surgeon, plastic surgeon, ENT specialist, orthodontist and a speech therapist. We are associated with international organizations such as The Smile Train Project, which provides free surgeries for children with cleft lip and palate.
The spectrum of cleft lip and palate ranges from a minor lip deformity or a cleft of the soft palate only, to a major cleft affecting the lip, nose, palate and the midface.
