Repairing Defects and Deformities

Dr. Mourad’s advanced, extensive training and broad experience has led him to become expert in many of the most complex head and neck surgeries. These procedures include the reconstruction of pediatric and congenital defects, repair of cleft lip and cleft palates, and jaw hypoplasia correction.

Dr. Mourad also treats vascular malformations found in the head and neck area. These can be made up of arteries, veins, lymph vessels, or a combination of these. They are usually present at birth and can vary from simple birthmarks to complex structures deep within the body.

These types of defects and deformities can range from minor imperfections through disfiguring malformations that impact patients’ natural functions. Patients sometimes require multiple procedures that have to be performed over the course of many years. For example, to achieve maximum improvement when a congenital abnormality such as a cleft lip or palate is repaired during youth, it may need to be redone at the time the patient reaches skeletal maturity. That’s why Dr. Mourad typically follows our patients for many years.
