Paediatric Plastic Surgery – Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate Repair, and More – Melbourne, Victoria
Children born with congenital anomalies (meaning present at birth) can face aesthetic and self-esteem issues as well as functional problems, as they grow up. Paediatric plastic surgery assists in the management of many different birth anomalies found in infants, including hand differences, vascular anomalies, cleft lip, cleft palate and more, resulting in both improved appearance and function.
Melbourne plastic surgeon Dr. David Ross is extensively trained in the treatment of birth anomalies of the face and hand. Following completion of his Plastic Surgery training in Melbourne, Victoria, Dr. Ross underwent advanced fellowships in paediatric plastic surgery initially at The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto, Canada and subsequently at The Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, United States. Since 2000, Dr David Ross has been head of Paediatric Plastic Surgery at The Monash Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. Also he has been a member of the Multidisciplinary Clinic of Cleft Palate and Facial Anomalies at Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne since 1996. He also runs another clinic at Monash Medical Centre, treating children with congenital anomalies of the hand and other conditions. With his training and experience, Dr. Ross is able to provide safe and effective surgical intervention for infants and children with cleft lip, cleft palate, and other congenital disorders, through Bayside Plastic Surgery, his private plastic surgery clinic based in Melbourne, Victoria.
