Featured Procedure: Cleft Lip and Palate Repair Surgery

Dr. Jeffrey James is the top independent Cleft Lip and Palate Repair Specialist in New Orleans. Almost 2 in every 1000 babies are born with a cleft lip or palate, many parents are deeply concerned but your child’s condition can be fixed with state-of-the-art procedures. Those suffering from cleft lip and/or palate can have normality and basic mouth functions restored. Reconstructive surgery to repair a cleft lip or cleft palate is strongly recommended within the first 12 months of life. Earlier surgery, in most cases can take place, will usually be the better. These surgeries could also include further dental/orthodontic work and/or speech therapy. Dr. James is superbly knowledgeable about this procedure and will guide you and your family through the entire process to make sure that your child has a stable and normal life post-surgery. If you are in need of cleft lip or palate surgery, make a call today.

“I had jaw surgery to correct my overbite and today marks two months. I feel like I have never looked better. He explained everything very simply and is extremely nice. He explained anything and everything we had questions about before and after surgery. My healing process went extremely well and after two weeks, besides a little bruising, you could barely even tell that I had had major surgery. Thank you Dr. James, my smile shines brighter because of you, and I may finally get my braces off after 6 years thanks to your fantastic work.”
-Madison Anderson
