Pediatric Craniofacial Clinic to provide services in new location

A baby's faceOn October 2, 2018, the multidisciplinary Craniofacial Clinic will move from Moos Tower on the East Bank of the University of Minnesota campus to the Explorer Clinic at 2450 Riverside Ave on the West Bank. This move does not change the services offered to patients; it is a location change to help align pediatric clinics.

The clinic is also shifting from afternoon appointments to the morning. If patients have an appointment after October 2, their parents will be contacted by phone for scheduling.

Important note
Based on their conditions, some patients may continue to have follow-up appointments in the East Bank location. Schedulers will let parents know the location of their appointments when they are called to set up the visit.

The pediatric Craniofacial Clinic remains a collaborative service for patients. The Pediatric Neurosurgery team looks forward to seeing everyone in their new location.

For more information about the clinic or the move, please call (612) 624-6666.
