The Plastic Surgery team sees children locally and from all over the West Midlands region and works within other services at the Children's Hospital. Plastic surgery repairs areas of the body that have been injured in some way.
The regional Cleft Service is based at the Children's Hospital. More than 100 new babies per year are seen by the well-established team.
The Craniofacial Service is also well-established and one of only four in the country. This service is growing and currently has a weekly operating list and weekly clinic.
