The Medical Photography team at Addenbrooke’s Hospital specialise in photographing patients to produce accurate images that show their medical condition clearly.

Children born with a Cleft lip and/or palate will be photographed at regular intervals. Key points include before and after surgery, 5 years, 10 years, 15 years and 20 years old, as well as at any other time that your clinician may require photography.

These photographs are used to help preparations for surgery, to track progress of treatment and for audit.
