What to expect after craniosynostosis surgery
Posted on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013 at 1:47 pm by Williams Hart
Since craniosynostosis surgery is a very critical operation that involves surgery on the infant’s skull, extreme care should be followed to ensure a proper recovery and to prevent any other complications from possibly arising.
After the surgery, the infant will have to stay for a couple of days at the hospital or surgical center where he or she can be monitored closely by doctors. Mild pain and swelling around the eyes is commonly experienced after the surgery for a couple of days. To ensure proper development of the skull, the patient will have to undergo a series of check-ups that may be scheduled every six weeks. Once the patient reaches the age of six, they may need to undergo annual check-up.
