Innovations and advances in spinal surgery are enabling orthopedic surgeons to perform minimally-invasive procedures that restore normal function to the spine. Dr. Ronald Lehman, a spine surgeon at NewYork Presbyterian Allen Hospital, was the first surgeon to use the Mazor X surgical system in the region. The Mazor X combines preoperative planning tools and analytics with intraoperative guidance to assist surgeons in minimally invasive surgery, which results in remarkable patient outcomes.

From the looks of almost two-year-old Grace Lorraine, she seems like a typical toddler. She enjoys playing on the beach and is always trying to keep up with her big brother. You wouldnt be able to tell that Grace was born with a rare condition called Pierre Robin sequence a congenital condition that caused her jaw to be underdeveloped and her tongue to sit back making it difficult for Grace to breathe. Soon after Grace was born, a nurse noticed another characteristic commonly found in those with Pierre Robin a cleft of her soft palate. Her doctors recommended she be transferred to another hospital for additional care. Following a mothers intuition, Graces parents insisted on going to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. As soon as the Lorraine family arrived at NYP & Weill Cornell Medicine an entire team of specialists worked together to quickly assemble a plan of action. Dr. Jay Neugarten performed Graces first surgery, a mandibular distraction, when she was just 10 days old. The procedure involved inserting devices to help lengthen Graces jaw and ultimately open her airway. This surgery was a success and solved Graces breathing issues. At 10 months old, Dr. Vikash K. Modi successfully repaired Graces soft palate. Following a challenging first year, Grace is now thriving she has a big appetite and a spunky personality to match! In honor of National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness and Prevention Month, we celebrate patients like Grace, who is one of the thousands of people affected by cleft and craniofacial conditions each year.
