Doing Our Part to Help Others: Cleft Lip and Palate Charity Care
By Dr. Sutton Graham on March 23, 2011
The events In Japan (earthquake & tsunami) remind us how transient our happiness, security, and even health may actually be. Special efforts will be necessary to help those effected. However, Dr. Graham and the staff at Aesthetic Center regularly assist children and families in our region, impacted by cleft lip and palate congenital deformities.
Dr. Graham is one of the few plastic surgeons in our community that participate in the Facial Anomalies and Cleft Evaluation Team (FACET). This clinic offers a national-standard multi-disciplinary team approach. It includes pediatricians, geneticists, speech therapists, audiologists, social workers, orthodontists, and oral surgeons. It provides translators for non-English speakers. FACET cares for hundreds of children from Greenwood, Oconee, Pickens, Laurens, and Greenville Counties. Many families have health insurance, but Medicaid is available for those that qualify.
For indigent patients, we provide our plastic surgical services free of charge.
