Just like the little boy in the movie Wonder, 5-year-old Logan Killeen has Treacher Collins syndrome. Scott Bartlett, MD, Chief of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), has helped transform Logan's facial differences.
Treacher Collins syndrome is a genetic birth defect characterized by a range of distinctive craniofacial anomalies that can affect the eyes, ears, cheeks, palate and jaw. Children with Treacher Collins syndrome usually need several reconstructive surgeries. Logan recently underwent a surgery at CHOP to create a new ear.
