Institute for Craniofacial Surgery

Dad With Girl On ShouldersChildren born with abnormalities of the lip, palate, head or face or any type of head or facial deformities require a multi-tiered strategy to optimize their functioning and quality of life. Beyond improving cosmetic issues, these young patients often need help swallowing, eating, speaking clearly and maintaining positive self-esteem.

Multidisciplinary services are available at the New Jersey Institute for Craniofacial Surgery, where we offer a comprehensive team approach to the treatment of craniofacial deformities. Founded in 1951, the center is the oldest established facility of its kind in the greater metropolitan area. We have treated over 200 children seen annually with different types of head and facial deformities.

The NJ Institute for Craniofacial Surgery at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center is fully approved by American Cleft Palate Association (ACPA) as a Cross-Specialty Team.
