Your child’s health is your top priority. It’s ours too.

University Health System is among the nation’s leading healthcare centers for diagnosing, treating, and developing advanced treatment methods to provide unmatched, quality care for infants with craniosynostosis.

Our Craniosynostosis Treatment

Our approach decreases complications, surgical trauma, and need for transfusions during surgery, producing exceptional results with less overall risk to your baby. In our procedure, the prematurely closed suture is released, allowing the rapidly growing brain to remodel the skull and face to a normal shape. If there's no underlying brain abnormality, the surgery allows your baby’s brain adequate space to grow and develop.

If your baby was recently diagnosed with craniosynostosis, our medical team is here for you with answers that will help you make the best treatment decisions. If your baby has not yet been formally diagnosed with craniosynostosis, but you are concerned about the shape of his or her head, please contact us to schedule an evaluation.

The key to treating craniosynostosis is early detection and treatment—please contact us by phone or email for additional information or to schedule an evaluation.
