Smile Train Virtual Cleft Surgery Education Videos

Smile Train developed our Virtual Cleft Surgery Education Videos to enhance and accelerate the way surgeons learn and teach cleft lip and palate surgery. Using 3D animation tools and powerful visualization software, Dr. Court Cutting of New York University, a world-renowned cleft surgeon and technology pioneer, created the world’s first virtual cleft surgery teaching tool. A tool that is being used today by tens of thousands of surgeons all over the world to improve their skills, learn new techniques, and to visualize, demonstrate and teach cleft surgery in a bold new way.
