The Craniofacial Programme is jointly run by the Plastic Surgery and Neurosurgery services at Christchurch, Wellington and Hutt Hospitals. The service cares for children with a range of craniofacial conditions requiring craniofacial surgery in the South Island and Lower North Island. The service sees approximately 120 new patients each year. The Craniofacial Programme is a national centre of excellence with a strong international reputation. It has an excellent safety record. Craniofacial Surgery is performed as a team by Craniofacial surgeon Charles Davis conjointly with neurosurgeons Martin MacFarlane in Christchurch and Agadha Wickremesekera in Wellington. Multidisciplinary Craniofacial clinics are held in Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. A referral from your family doctor or Paediatrician is needed to be seen in these clinics. Members of the Craniofacial team are involved with teaching craniofacial surgery in developing countries and participate regularly in craniofacial research and education.
