We advise you to send photographs of your baby’s head, including from above and in front, for our clinicians to review. We provide an expert assessment and honest recommendations for the best way ahead.
We’re not able to formally diagnose craniosynostosis, but our expert clinicians are very experienced with head shape abnormalities, and can advise whether your baby is showing signs of synostosis or simply positional deformation (flat head syndrome).
There’s no fee, no pressure from us, and no distress for your baby. If we think that your baby might have craniosynostosis, we can advise you on how to obtain an urgent referral to one of the 5 UK craniofacial hospitals which treat this condition.
If your surgeon proceeds with surgery for craniosynostosis, then they may refer you back to us for post-surgery helmet therapy. We work closely with the NHS and other clinical experts and can coordinate on your child’s treatment.
