Sometimes these conditions affect multiple areas of your child’s health, such as the heart or the immune system. Velocardiofacial Syndrome (VCFS), also known as DiGeorge Syndrome or 22q Deletion and Duplication Syndrome, is one example. We specialize in diagnosing and treating children with these kinds of complex medical conditions.

We’ll put together a team of interdisciplinary providers, all dedicated to your child’s needs. We take a family-centered approach, because we know that works best when dealing with facial and dental issues. One of the first things we’ll do is meet together with you to give you full information about the diagnosis, treatment options and priorities, and potential long term care needs.

You will see the results of our state-of-the-art diagnostic services such as 3D reconstruction models and advanced analysis of speech disorders. We welcome individual meetings too, including prenatal and pre-adoption consultations.
