Second Opinions

If you have questions as to the best treatment option for your child with a cranial abnormality, such as craniosynostosis or deformational plagiocephaly, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to obtain a second opinion at our Center for Craniofacial Anomalies. Your child's previous medical records and any imaging studies will be carefully reviewed, and our thorough evaluation process will help you to better understand your child’s condition.
