Our daughter had bilateral cleft lip. During the pregnancy, we had a consult with our local big city children's hospital, which is widely known for how great their craniofacial team is. We were told to expect several surgeries with revisions, etc in the first year. Our daughter has other medical issues which also require surgery, so this was a great concern for us.

We met Dr. Ruas when our son was 10 days old. When our son was 10 weeks old, Dr. Ruas repaired his cleft lip. He made us feel very comfortable with the procedure he was going to do, and the results were absolutely amazing! Our son is now almost 2 and no one would ever know he'd ever had any reconstructive surgery. Not only was his work amazing, but also his office staff. They were able to get us an appointment right away, and quickly came up with a surgical plan. Our family will be forever grateful!!!
