Clinic Appointments

Clinic appointments include evaluations by multiple specialists during one visit, as necessary. Our specialists work together to develop coordinated team assessments and treatment plans, and aim to minimize the number of appointments and procedures a patient may require.

Personalized Care

Many cases require complex surgeries to treat your child’s condition. This may introduce unique circumstances that will impact medical care throughout his or her life. Our team provides the necessary long-term care for patients and families, even after the child enters adulthood.

Connecticut Children’s adheres to the national Image Gently standards to limit radiation exposure to children while still providing safe, high-quality pediatric imaging.

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling services are available allowing for early detection of genetic disorders, resulting in early intervention for craniofacial abnormalities assisting families with making informed decisions for their child.

Audiology Services

For your convenience, hearing tests can be coordinated for the same day as your Craniofacial Team visit. Our comprehensive audiology team performs in-depth testing and diagnosis to determine if your child has a hearing loss or vestibular disorders, and measures the type of severity of any problem.
