Craniosynostosis is a birth defect of the brain characterized by the premature closure of one or more of the fibrous joints (called the cranial sutures) between the bones of the skull before brain growth is complete.
If your child is diagnosed with craniosynostosis, the experienced surgeons in the Division of Plastic Surgery at Jefferson will work closely with you and your child to develop a personalized treatment plan. The goal of this surgery is to reduce the pressure in the head and correct the deformities of the face and skull bones.
Jefferson's Division of Plastic Surgery is the oldest continuous plastic surgery practice in the United States. The history and tradition of our practice is evidence of the quality of plastic surgical care that we provide. All of our physicians are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Our vast experience has allowed us to adapt and modify different surgical techniques to provide you with the best possible result. We are careful to examine new procedures thoroughly before offering them to our patients. You can be assured that if we suggest an operation, it is safe, proven and effective. Our office staff is dedicated to each patient's satisfaction.
