DUCK DYNASTY Star Jase Robertson’s Daughter Mia to Have Major Surgery

By Movieguide® Staff

DUCK DYNASTY stars Jase and Missy Roberton’s youngest daughter, Mia, will undergo “major surgery” to mend her cleft lip and palate.

Mia, 17, has struggled with her condition since birth and underwent several operations to fix her mouth.

Missy Robertson announced Mia’s next round of medical trips via Instagram.

“Another medical road trip in the books. Along with our 6-week orthodontic visits to Dallas, we also make regular visits to Mia’s surgeon. And we ALWAYS stop in for Chuy’s queso and creamy jalapeño afterwards! #CleftCutie.”

The Robertson family founded “The Mia Moo Fund” to help children with similar conditions.

“The mission of Mia Moo is to inform, inspire, and improve the quality of life for children born with cleft lip/palate,” the website reads.

The Mia Moo Fund’s Instagram page updated followers on Mia’s next surgery.

“Mia saw her surgeon Dr. David Genecov and his staff and scheduled a major surgery. Dr. David Genecov, nurses Kelly and Jeanette, have been caring for her most of her life. What a blessing to see these familiar faces and hear their sweet greetings and genuine interest in her activities and interests each time we have to make these visits,” the post reads. “It has been a comfort to this mom, especially when I know that each visit means more changes, more discomfort, more risk for my child.”

The Robertsons are candid about their faith and also took the opportunity to thank God for the surgeons and Mia’s support team.

“However, I also take comfort in knowing God has led us to the perfect team for the best possible chance for my child’s success. This time is no different,” the post reads.

Mia’s next surgery is more significant than her previous 12 operations.

“Now for the difficult part: this surgery is called a distraction. Dr. Genecov will break both upper and lower jaws on each side in order for them to meet in the middle. Since Mia’s upper jaw stopped growing some years ago, this surgery is in hopes that her teeth and jaws will function normally in terms of chewing and speaking,” Missy wrote. “She will also look very different once she is healed. Dr. David Genecov is leading the way in regards to new procedures that do not involve a halo. This is EVERYTHING to the cleft world! It means far less time in the ICU and far less trauma to these children (and their parents!). This is the 13th surgery/procedure in her short life, and we are confident and blessed to have found such a wonderful team of surgeons and staff to take care of her for the last 17 years! We pray every cleft child can be as blessed.”
