At the Department of Pediatric Plastic Surgery at Seoul National University Children’s Hospital, authoritative faculty members, fellows, residents, and nurses in each field are faithfully conducting world-class treatment and research.
The primary target diseases include cleft lip and palate, the most frequent congenital deformity of the head and neck, as well as hemifacial microsomia, craniofacial anomaly, and microtia. We also specialize in congenital anomalies of the hands and feet, such as polydactyly and syndactyly, to rare cases including macrodactyly and constriction band syndrome, and provide genetic testing and counseling for congenital anomalies of the limbs with a family history. Other post-traumatic deformities, scars, and skin tumors are also treated.
The growth of the facial area is fast in pediatric patients, and physical deformities are susceptible to mental injury. Treatment must therefore be performed by the best medical team at the right time, and also must be performed in close cooperation with other related specialized departments. In this respect, the Department of Pediatric Plastic Surgery is establishing a close collaboration system with the Department of Orthodontics, Pediatric Neurosurgery, Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, Pediatric Radiology, Pediatric Anesthesia, Speech Therapy, etc., based on the best treatment experience and achievements in Korea for over 30 years. As a result, we are delivering the best results by successfully treating children not only in Korea but also around the world.
Seoul National University Children’s Hospital Pediatric Plastic Surgery Clinic is conducting research continuously on the treatment of congenital anomalies in order to provide the world’s best medical care, and we will endeavor to provide medical care that gives hope and dreams to children.
