Many of the surgeries on Wednesday were cleft palate repairs. These surgeries generally take about 2 hours. During the surgery, the surgeon will close the hole in the palate and this is done by pulling the tissue together on either side of the opening in the palate. To get access to the palate, a retractor device is used as shown in the photo.
