My research parallels our specialized clinical programs at Duke. I am involved in clinical research looking comprehensively at outcomes of cleft care to develop standards for evaluating a team’s overall success. Based on a recent grant from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are also participating with several centers to look specifically at academic, psychosocial, and surgical outcomes for all children with clefts born in North Carolina. We are committed to the technique of nasoalveolar molding for children with clefts and are engaged in analyzing its benefits. In rhinoplasty, we have developed a model for nasal respiratory physiology, and we are looking at the effects of specific surgical procedures on nasal airflow and resistance. Our Craniofacial imaging lab has developed sophisticated software to analyze cranial shape, and we use these techniques to define abnormal conditions and their treatment relative to normal. Lastly, our craniomaxillofacial trauma team continues to look at factors associated with facial trauma in North Carolina in order to implement techniques and processes to deliver optimal care and results.
