Our clinical research is focused on 1) characteristics of growth and development in cleft lip and palate, hemifacial microsomia and craniosynostosis syndromes, 2) delineation of factors contributing to abnormal development, 3) effects of the neuromuscular system on bone morphology and growth patterns under normal and perturbed conditions, 4) stability of craniofacial skeletal components after major reconstructive procedures, and 5) treatment outcomes following various types of management procedures in a team environment.
