    I think the university of Hong Kong has a special centre for cleft lip patients cos I saw quite a few kids with cleft palataes coming out from the hospital when I went for my check up a few years back- its the prince philip hospital in Sai Ying Pun, next door to Tsun Yuk hospital- give them a call and see. Its a dental hospital so I assume they must see cleft patients as well?

    my second child was born with soft cleft palate, and we found the ONLY doctor who does cleft repair when the baby is 6 month old is Dr. Chan in Taiwan, while the rest of world does repairs at 12-15 month. she had a very succuessful surgery, and has no speech delay at all. if you are interested to know more of my experence, please do not hesitate to write to me. meanwhile, stay strong, my thoughts are with you.
