Craniosynostosis / Craniostenosis

A newborn’s skull consists of several plates of soft bone, which eventually fuse together as he or she grows. If this fusion happens too early, or in an abnormal way, the condition is called craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis can cause pressure on the growing brain and affect your baby’s eyesight and appearance. Johns Hopkins experts can help restore function and form to your child’s skull and face.
