Early surgery may help babies with cleft lip or palate

According to officials, the early detection and surgery for cleft lip and palates mean that a early surgery can be scheduled and can be really helpful for the development of the child.

A cleft lip or palate can develop in the first trimester and is the most common birth defect in the U.S. with more than 7,000 babies born each year with it. The defect occurs when the mouth fails to fuse properly and in most cases, a prenatal ultrasound can detect it.

As soon a diagnosis is made, parents can be counseled in order to deal with the issue and they can schedule a surgery and a treatment plan so that the baby can function as normally as possible. It has been shown that early surgery can help the child with  proper speech development.

If you or a loved one’s child has developed a cleft lip or palate after being prescribed a cleft lip or palate, contact the Depakote cleft lip or palate lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187.
