Drs. Kelly and Herman perform Cleft lip and palate surgery for children and adults afflicted with this congenital deformity. They both have extensive experience treating these deformities.
Dr. Kelly trained with Dr. Ralph Millard, the "father" of modern cleft lip surgery. He also is a founding member of the Miami Children’s Hospital Craniofacial Center.
Dr. Herman and Dr. Kelly have travelled the globe performing these surgeries as part of Operation Smile, a charity which provides free surgery to children afflicted with this condition.
In newborns, surgery usually begins at 3 months of age and the goal is to have all surgeries completed by the child’s first birthday.
