Jacksonville Cleft Lip & Palate Clinic
Dr. John Obi and approximately 20 professionals meet twice a month to create treatment plans for children with Cleft Lip & Palate. In addition to 24 clinic meetings per year, members of the Team provide treatment for each child according to his or her specialties and conduct post-surgery follow-ups.
Dr. John Obi was appointed as the Plastic Surgeon in Charge of the Jacksonville Cleft Lip & Palate Clinic in 1985. Founded in 1952, the Jacksonville Cleft Lip & Palate Clinic was the 1st organized clinic in the State of Florida. Dr. John Obi remained in that position and eventually received an appointment with The University of Florida School of Medicine Shands-Jacksonville as an Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor.
