Changing children’s lives with plastic surgery

Doctor and nurse with child in hospital

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) For children born with a cleft lip or teenagers recovering from a car accident, plastic surgery may be the answer that could change their lives.

Dr. John Girotto specializes in Pediatric Craniofacial Plastic Surgery at Spectrum Health. They can treat conditions such as a cleft lip or palate, skull and facial bone deformities, trauma like dog bites or car accidents, breast deformities, and untypical moles and strawberry colored birth marks.

The staff at Spectrum health treats the whole family when they treat a child. They put the family first, even for simple procedures. They try to make the family comfortable right from the start by meeting the doctors and staff members, having toys and a play area for children, and guiding them through every step of the process.
