CONGENITAL CONDITIONS

This is the name of conditions that appear at birth. They appear due to problems during the fetal development and most often affected areas are the faces, the lips and the palate (like cleft lip). There are also more severe cases of craniofacial dysplasia that require treatment in specially equipped centers.

Dysplasias of the extremities like syndactylies and polydactylies are treated by reconstructive plastic surgery.
