Treacher Collins syndrome is a birth defect characterized by a range of distinctive craniofacial anomalies that can affect the eyes, ears, cheeks, palate and jaw. Children with this condition may require a series of surgeries over years. Depending on the severity, the condition may require surgical techniques including airway reconstruction, cheek reconstruction, jaw reconstruction, ear reconstruction and cleft palate repair.
