Formmed is a place where medical knowledge changes everyday life, revealing its more beautiful form and friendlier face.
We offer highly specialist procedures concerning the correction of congenital disorders and defects, with focus on the craniofacial abnormalities i.e. cleft lip and/or palate. In Formmed we also perform procedures in the field of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine.
Our Medical Manager, Ph.D. Professor of Medicine Zofia Dudkiewicz is a specialist in both: maxillofacial surgery and pediatric surgery. She devoted a greater part of her professional life to the cleft lip problems. She is an author of more than 250 articles published in peer reviewed scientific magazines in Poland and abroad. The articles were focused on following issues: surgery of developmental defects and disorders of the face and skull, neonatal surgery, respiratory failure and gastroesophageal reflux disease, defects (anomalies) of the genitourinary organs, standardization of the procedures concerning developmental diseases.
She has developed original method of surgical treatment of cleft lip and palate that has proved successful for over 20 years now. It is an exceptional method on a European scale – it is based on the one stage surgical connection of soft tissues of the oral and nasal cavity already in 6 month old children and a transplant of the patient’s bone (taken from the child’s ilium) to the alveolar process in 2-3 year old patients. It enables to practically conclude all the surgical procedures when the patient is still in pre-school age. Properly connected palatal muscles guarantee correct development of speech, which is of considerable importance for further development of the child, its psyche and social adaptation.
Early diagnosis, fast implementation and reduction to minimum of the number of surgical procedures, and thus conclusion of the surgical treatment of cleft lip and palate patient by the age of four, when the children easily forget events, is an unquestionable asset of our center. We offer complex patient service – our team is made of specialists in many medical fields – next to surgeons (pediatric surgery specialists, oral and maxillofacial surgery specialists, neurosurgeon, plastic surgeon) also orthodontist, dentist, speech therapist and phoniatrist are available to our patients.
Our mission is to make it possible for every patient born with a defect or suffering from developmental disorders, to develop properly and to take an active part in social living.

"I will be leaving Warsaw in a couple of days - it was an unbelievable experience for my husband and I. The staff are second to none - I was happy that my surgeon spoke English and made me feel at ease when I was so nervous in the operating room. I am still having water fall down my cheeks, but they are tears of happiness - I'm so glad I came and had the procedure!"
