Cleft Palate and Cleft Lip Surgery

We have partnered with Operation Smile Philippines to establish a world class cleft palate and cleft lip surgery center. Hundreds of children have undergone successful surgeries which has transformed their appearance and improved their chances in life. Local otolaryngologists and anesthetists volunteer their time to perform these surgeries which take place under strict safety guidelines. Post surgery, patients are housed with a parent for 2-3 days in our adjacent hostel for observation.
