MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The WVU Medicine cleft and craniofacial team has received approval by the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA).
WVU Medicine’s cleft and craniofacial team is one of two ACPA approved cleft palate teams in the state and is the state’s only ACPA approved craniofacial team.
“By receiving ACPA approval, we are able to demonstrate that our team has the highest level of training in cleft palate and craniofacial surgery,” Aaron Mason, M.D., interim chief of the Division of Cosmetic, Plastic, and Reconstructive Surgery at WVU Medicine. “The ACPA sets the industry standard for cleft palate and craniofacial surgery, and its approval is a recognition of our dedication to the highest quality of patient care.”
The ACPA is an international nonprofit association of more than 2,500 healthcare professionals who are involved in the treatment and research of cleft lip, cleft palate, and other craniofacial abnormalities. ACPA optimizes the interdisciplinary care of persons affected by craniofacial abnormalities.
