The Auckland Regional Unit for Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery is based at Middlemore and Starship Hospitals. You are able to access this service by seeing your family doctor to be referred into the public system. It is the best place to manage these issues as it needs a multidisciplinary team to look after children and adults with congenital differences.
I hope you find these guides helpful in preparation for surgery and for your recovery. It will cover general details of surgery and the normal way that individual’s recover after facial surgery.
