While a cleft surgery can transform a child’s life in as little as 45 minutes, Operation Smile is committed to addressing their patients’ cleft care needs throughout their childhood and adolescence so that they can realise happier and healthier futures.
Timely cleft surgery can contribute to a patient’s long term health and well being.
A cleft condition can cause malnourishment. The nutritional support Operation Smile provides helps patients grow healthy for surgery. Feeding workshops help to teach parents feeding techniques for their babies.
Speech and language therapists help patients to utilise their tongue and speech muscles so they can speak more clearly and have a stronger opportunity for education.
Orthodontic care is also crucial to a patient’s healthy oral development and personal confidence.
Certified psychosocial care providers help patients and families throughout the course of their treatment.
