The Muthoot Cleft Initiative under the aegis of the Muthoot M. George CSR Foundation provides free surgery for underprivileged patients with cleft lip and palate deformities at Kumaran Hospital, Kilpauk, Chennai (a NABH-accredited Multispecialty Hospital). So far, around 50 patients have been operated under the Muthoot Cleft Initiative over the last 4 years for procedures like cleft lip surgery, cleft palate surgery, and cleft rhinoplasty (nose correction). Patients as young as 1 year to adults have been operated under this project.
    All surgeries are carried out by a team of Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr. Thomas Zachariah, and Dr. Sneha Pendem – trained cleft lip and palate surgeons. All charges including the cost of surgery, lab investigations, medicines, and hospital charges are totally free for the patient.
