Craniofacial Surgeries

Patients of any age with deformities affecting the face, head, and neck are candidates for Craniofacial surgery. This specialty concerns surgery of the head and skull to treat both congenital and acquired conditions, whether through trauma or disease, for patients of all ages. Patients of all ages with trauma-related injuries requiring craniofacial restoration are also commonly referred. An emerging application of craniofacial surgery is the reconstruction of faces disfigured by cancer. In these cases, microsurgery is a major component of the treatment approach.

Diseases with specific indications for craniofacial surgery are as follows:
Craniosynostosis

  • Premature Fusion of cranial sutures , which are primary & secondary, resulting in Abnormal Head shape.
  • Metopic suture - Trigonocephaly
  • Coronal suture – Brachycephaly
  • Sagittal suture - Scaphocephaly
  • Lambdoid suture - Plagiocephaly
