Surgery for Multi-Suture Craniosynostosis and Craniosynostosis Syndromes

Our team provides comprehensive care for patients affected by multi-suture craniosynostosis and craniosynostosis associated with craniofacial syndromes. We participate in the multidisciplinary craniofacial team at Weill Cornell Medicine to ensure that surgical options are individualized and appropriate for these unique patients. Our team provides a full panel of procedures, both staged and definitive. These procedures include but are not limited to suture release; anterior and posterior distraction; occipital decompression; fronto-orbital advancement; midface monobloc; Lefort I, II, and III; box osteotomies; and distractions. Our team is leading the field of craniofacial surgery in outcomes, volume, and the use of technology in surgery. The team will review the surgical recommendations with you, along with a cutting edge virtual surgical plan to prepare the patient and the family for the procedure both verbally and visually.
