Cronin & Brauer Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic
Incorporating a 50-year legacy in the field of plastic surgery, the Cronin & Brauer Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Houston helps children and adults face the world as they should – with a healthy, winning smile.
The Cronin-Brauer Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic joined forces with Houston’s Shriners Hospital for Children to significantly enhance one of the key branches of the Hospital’s pediatric care service areas. This partnership is the completion of a long-term project that involved Dr. Ernest Cronin, CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare, and Shriners Hospital. With each entity recognizing the health and social impacts of cleft lip — the need to offer comprehensive corrective services that involve every aspect of addressing and treating the condition is critical.
The Cronin-Brauer Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic, now located within Shriners Hospital for Children, is the oldest and one of the most well-respected programs in the nation.
