How are craniofacial anomalies diagnosed?

Your child’s doctor may diagnose a craniofacial anomaly at birth or during the first few months of life. Sometimes, these deformities can be identified before birth with a prenatal ultrasound.

What are the treatment options for craniofacial anomalies?

Treatment for craniofacial anomalies depends on the individual condition. If your child’s deformity worsens or fails to improve after a trial of mechanical adjustments, you should consider contacting a pediatric neurosurgeon, a general neurosurgeon with expertise in pediatrics or a craniofacial surgeon or craniofacial anomalies team.
