Overview

Overview

The Reconstructive Craniofacial Center at Cleveland Clinic is a specialized, multidisciplinary effort instituted to optimize the care of patients with complex tissue and skull defects that follow trauma, decompressive craniotomy and craniectomy, tumor, infection, and non-healing wounds.

The team includes experts in neurosurgery, plastic surgery, neurology, radiology, anesthesiology, nursing, biomedical engineering and rehabilitation to ensure a smooth transition each step along the way.  Each member brings extensive experience treating cranial defects and shares the common goal of achieving superior clinical outcomes without compromising safety.

We aim to provide an environment of personal attention that our patients deserve and emphasize a culture of collaboration to maintain the highest level of clinical care. We are also focused on developing innovative approaches to craniofacial reconstruction and investigating and incorporating the latest treatments. Expedited access to our team, as well as communication with our referring primary care physicians and specialists, are our priorities.
