Craniosynostosis is the premature and abnormal fusion of 1 of the 6 suture lines that form the living skull (see the images below). This abnormal fusion results in an abnormal head shape from aberrant bone growth patterns and, if uncorrected, can lead to increased intracranial pressure (ICP) and abnormalities in the shape and symmetry of the craniofacial skeleton. Cranial deformity is produced when the bones of the skull fuse too early.

Surgical procedures within the first two years of life minimize the deformities and decrease the possibility of such complications as mental retardation and blindness by allowing the sutures to remain in the open position until brain growth is complete. In combination with skilled neurosurgeons, CPS provides you the optimal treatment for Craniosynostosis.
