Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Center HUSUKE

Opening hours and contact information

At the Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Center HUSUKE at Töölö Hospital, we treat cleft lip and palate patients, defective fusions of the cranial sutures (craniosynostoses), and associated syndromes.

In addition to cleft lip and palate patients, we treat other deformities as well as children’s tumors and injuries that require plastic surgery. 

Our outpatient clinic offers appointments with specialists, specialists in dentistry, and speech therapists. If necessary, we will also cooperate with other medical specialties. 

Surgical procedures for those under 16 years of age will be conducted at the New Children's Hospital. These surgeries are also performed by the experienced plastic surgeons of HUSUKE.

Children are admitted for surgery at the New Children's Hospital through the LEIKO unit (to surgery from home). After the procedure, the child is transferred for further treatment on the Avaruus ward.

HUSUKE is the only pediatric plastic surgery unit in Finland.
