Our cleft treatment infrastructure

Free, quality cleft treatment throughout India

We are proud to be able to offer treatment at hospitals all over the country. The main step in a cleft treatment is a qualified surgery, which should take place as early in life as possible, enabling the proper development of the facial muscles and even hearing, which is impaired by the open palate. Our surgeons are all very experienced and highly skilled, with specialist training in fields associated to the treatment of cleft. Our donors finance the treatment and, where necessary, travel cost.

After the surgical cleft repair, which is the vital first step of the treatment process, ist complete, we also offer specialized followup care such as speech therapy and orthodontics to ensure the best quality of life and functionality outcomes for our patients.

If you or a loved one suffer from cleft please do not hesitate to contact us or the cleft center closest to you (see the list of our centers below) to learn about the treatment option closest to you. A doctor at your closest cleft center will examine the patient and answer all your questions about the the treatment process.

Comprehensive cleft care

Cleft can be treated very well when all necessary medical specialists are available and work hand in hand. We strive to provide all necessary services as a coordinated whole, with social workers, nurses, surgeons, orthodontists, and speech therapists all working together to ensure that our little patients have the best possible results from their treatment. We call this approach comprehensive cleft care. We can currently offer this full spectrum of services in six locations in India.

The operation on a cleft lip and palate immediately frees the children from the deformation itself. The child can only hear and learn to speak properly when the cleft is closed, ensuring the joining of the facial muscles and when the hearing ability is safeguarded with the completion of the soft palate. Hearing shall be checked regularly during growth (increased up to at least 7 years). Accumulation of fluid behind the eardrum, which can lead to hearing problems and ear infections need to be drained by grommets.

Subsequent surgery is often necessary due to the growth of the child in order to prevent new facial deformities caused by displacements. Additionally, a correction of the malpositioning of the teeth is necessary with braces for the teeth and jaw. With these procedures and a subsequent speech therapy the children have the best chances for a complete recovery. The cooperation of an interdisciplinary team of surgeons, orthodontists, ENT-specialists and speech therapists is therefore extremely important for the treatment of cleft children. This is the only way that the deformity is rectified in all of its complexity and the children are provided with a chance for a positive development.

Awareness and education

Education and training are given a lot of importance in empowering young medical professionals and healthcare workers to continue social service to society. At the same time, a continued exchange of knowledge and upgradation of skills is emphasized by ABMSS. With this philosophy, a number of education initiatives and training programmes have been embarked upon.

To maximize the positive impact we have in the lives of the cleft children, ABMSS strives to create knowledge and acceptance among general public. For this reason, we conduct cleft awareness camps in the rural pockets as well as in urban slums of India.

Our dedicated project animators go village to village, meet with the Anganwadi workers, ASHA Health workers, conduct awareness programmes in schools, public places to educate people about the cleft condition and tell them about our free cleft surgery services.
