Craniosynostosis refers to a condition when one or more of the sutures of an infant’s skull fuse together too early. This condition may be from unknown cause or part of a genetic syndrome.
We work closely with pediatricians and specialists to diagnose the condition. Diagnostic imaging reveals specifics and any other conditions associated with craniosynostosis. Generally, one suture is affected, however, multiple suture synostosis can develop. Craniosynostosis may cause abnormal brain development secondary to pressure in the skull.
We have a great deal of experience caring for children with craniosynostosis. We work in conjunction with the craniofacial team and evaluate and treat about 5 to 75 children with craniosynostosis each year.
