Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji performed the surgical correction of the alveolar cleft using the advanced rhBMP-2 (recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein). This miracle protein stimulates the body’s own stem cells to form new bone at the site where it’s placed ultimately healing the bone defect. Following this, normal teeth eruption and teeth alignment can be achieved. The wonder of using this advanced technique is that additional surgery of bone grafting from the rib or hip is avoided and there is no scarring.
