Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness Month: Compassionate Medical Volunteers

A cleft lip and palate medical team is generally comprised of a craniofacial plastic surgeon, an orthodontist, and a speech therapist, depending upon the child’s specific needs. Many patients with clefts require multiple surgeries and care by these and other specialists over several years. LEAP’s medical volunteers are an outstanding group of approximately 250 medical professionals who provide the same quality of care in the developing countries LEAP serves, often seeing our patients year after year for the same specialized care they would receive in the US.
