Gain an appreciation for the challenges that lie ahead for those with facial deformity. Using his own patients’ clinical photos and personal stories, Dr. Jeffrey Posnick takes us through surgical thinking and describes current techniques that are used to reconstruct children with conditions such as craniosynostosis, skull defects, congenital tumors, cleft lip and palate, and developmental and posttraumatic jaw, nasal, and ear deformities. The necessity of bold surgical innovation and a coordinated comprehensive approach to a child’s facial reconstruction which often requires input from a spectrum of medical, surgical, and dental specialties and therapists becomes evident when visualizing the conditions described and reading through the chapters of this book.
