Five-Month-Old Undergoes Cleft Lip Repair

Jakyron Sherman

July is National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness and Prevention Month, which reminds us of the remarkable story of Jakyron Sherman from Season One of Children’s Med Dallas.

Jakyron’s parents brought him to Children’s when he was just 5 months old to have his cleft lip repaired.

Watch Dr. Alex Kane, Division Director for Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery at Children’s as well as professor of plastic surgery at UT Southwestern, and his team ensure Jakyron has everything from proper nutrition to a big, beautiful smile.
