Surgery 101: Cleft Lip and Palate

Surgery 101 is an online learning resource developed by students, residents and faculty at the University of Alberta.  It offers free open-access podcasts and resources for medical students to learn all things surgical. While the focus may be on Surgery, a number of these podcasts review important presentations in Pediatrics that learners should be familiar with.

In this episode, Dr. Jaret Olsen, a Pediatric Plastic Surgeon at the University of Alberta, addresses the topic of cleft lip and palate. Learning points include:

  • Inheritance patterns of the conditions
  • Management of problems with feeding, middle ear infections, speech and facial growth
