Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

Children with cleft lips or palates need careful and varied treatment plans to grow up healthy. Surgery is usually best done when they are a few months old to ensure they develop normally with the least amount of risk. After surgery, it’s important for children to get help from specialists like ear, nose, and throat doctors, speech therapists, and psychologists. This team helps with speech development, eating, and overall well-being, aiming for the best results so these children can have a good life.
For vascular anomalies, getting the right diagnosis early on is key. Knowing exactly what the issue is means treatment can start early, which might be as simple as monitoring or as complex as surgery. Parents should seek expert advice promptly if they notice any unusual marks on their child’s skin. Acting early can lead to better results and might reduce the need for bigger surgeries later on.
