Dr. Wood performed a correction for cleft lip and palate on our infant daughter. Most people cannot even tell that she had surgery! I think he is like an artist in his ability to repair cleft lips. We are so thankful to have him as our doctor.

Finding out our son had craniosynostosis was one of the hardest news we had to face as new parents. Dr. Wood is one of the best doctors ive ever met, my son had the traditional cranial vault reconstruction surgery in less than an hour, no blood transfusion, and he was home in three days. He is now 4 months post surgery and doing great, his suture healed so nicely. We are forever grateful to Dr. Wood and his team, we made the right decision.
