Dr Ruas repaired my daughter posterior cleft palate 11 years ago. He did an amazing job. She was 8 months old when she got the surgery. Thank you so Dr Ruas!

We met Dr. Ruas when our son was 10 days old. When our son was 10 weeks old, Dr. Ruas repaired his cleft lip. He made us feel very comfortable with the procedure he was going to do, and the results were absolutely amazing! Our son is now almost 2 and no one would ever know he'd ever had any reconstructive surgery. Not only was his work amazing, but also his office staff. They were able to get us an appointment right away, and quickly came up with a surgical plan. Our family will be forever grateful!!!
