New baby with birth defect

I'm a US citizen whose colombian wife just gave birth to a baby girl who was born with a cleft lip/palate. This was unexpected, and I'm wondering if there is a way to expedite my wife's visa to get treatment for my daughter in the US asap. The I-130 for my wife was approved and we are currently gathering the paperwork for the AOS and IV package at the NVC for the CR-1. We are searching for our best option. Any advice or redirection to a similar thread would be so very helpful.

Unfortunately the above link doesn't address my question. Any other help out there? Is it possible to get out Cr-1 visa expedited due to my daughter's birth defect and subsequent need for medical attention in the US?

If there are doctors available to do the procedure there, it's highly unlikely your wife's case will be expedited just to have your daughter come to the USA.

You also need to do the CRBA for your daughter and get her a US passport.
