A Simple Surgery
Most clefts can be completely corrected with a simple surgery that could take as little as 45 minutes. There are few procedures that can change a child's life as quickly and as dramatically as cleft surgery.
Smile Train India makes safe and quality-assured cleft lip and palate surgery available across the country. At zero cost to the patient, the surgery is available through our network of 170 partner hospitals.
Since we started working in India in the year 2000, Smile Train has sponsored over 450,000 surgeries across the country. This year we aim to provide free cleft surgeries to more than 50,000 children all over the country.
