At Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic, potential is seen in the changing faces of our patients. Opportunities are imagined in the child whose newly enhanced smile is shared with one of our nurses. Possibilities are evidenced in the framed photos, side-by-side on a home’s mantle, showing a baby with a craniofacial abnormality grown into a confident teen. Opportunities are heard when a teen in speech therapy produces a consonant he’d never been able to form before.
Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic is proud to be a part of watching families capitalize on the potential they already see in their child. In our eighty-year history, we have established an entirely new method of team care: the model that is now embraced world-wide as the standard for cleft care.
Eighty years has been a great beginning, but craniofacial needs are America’s most common birth defect. We build educated care plans using outcome studies that weigh immediate and long-term results, allowing our patients to transform into the best versions of themselves. We help bring out the potential that mom and dad knew was there all along.
Your face is your window to the world. It’s the first thing we see when we meet each other. Founded by H. K. Cooper, Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic has always embraced the groundbreaking philosophy of bringing all the necessary specialists together as a single team.
Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic has been a leader in the field for over 80 years, and we still have our gaze set firmly on the future. We continue to make important contributions to this field of knowledge.
