Patient Care

Screening camps are held in remote areas of the Madhesh Pradesh to educate people about cleft and craniofacial defects. Patients born with or suffering from these defects are identified and informed about the stages of their rehabilitation.

A special transport run by the Centre is used to transport the children and their parents to the Centre because most patients are so poor that they cannot afford to travel to Janakpur for treatment.

Our Team of Surgeons, Doctors, Counselors, Pediatrician, Speech Pathologists and Orthodontist counsel patients and parents on all related topics like their present condition, number of operations required, speech therapy, feeding procedures and orthodontic therapy. In our review it was found that at least 16 hours of counseling is given to each patient during the course of his or her treatment.

All preoperative investigations, photographs, radiographs, jaw impressions and dental and medical work up done before taking them up for surgery is done.

Surgery is performed and the patient is kept in the post operative ICU for 24 hours.

Sutures are removed if necessary on the 5th Post operative day and the patient is discharged.

Planning for the next surgery, orthodontics and speech therapy is done as we review the patients


A 17 bed General ward is available for patients who get free treatment done at the CFC Hospital. For those patients who can afford treatment 4 rooms are there on twin sharing basis. Well-equipped operation theatre is designated to the CFC Hospital where surgeries are done 6 days a week.

A designated 6-bed post op ICU with all modern amenities that include adult and paediatric ventilators is there for the use of CFC Hospital.

A dental clinic with all equipment to do orthodontic treatment for our patients before or after alveolar bone grafting surgeries has been set up.

All records are stored in an electronic medium in a database prepared exclusively for cleft and craniofacial patients.

A designated cooking and wash area is provided to all patients to reduce their financial burden.
