Get a second opinion from our craniosynostosis team
With more information, you can make better choices to help your child with craniosynostosis.
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin can provide the expert opinion on craniosynostosis to verify or give more information about your child's original diagnosis.
- We may be able to offer a different perspective and give more information.
- We may also be able to offer treatment options that are not available at your current provider's location.
At Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, we offer traditional open surgery as well as minimally invasive (endoscopic) surgery with post-operative helmet therapy. Craniosynostosis surgeries at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin are performed by board-certified craniofacial plastic surgeons and board-certified pediatric neurosurgeons working together. Our patients benefit from our multidisciplinary team approach and our experts' wide range of experiences.
Our treatment options are often more extensive than what is available at other hospitals.
Upon referral, a surgeon will review the options available with the parents to tailor the approach to the individual patient. "Before and after" photographs of children who may have had a similar type of surgery are available. There is also the option of connecting with families who have undergone the experience. Other specialists may be involved prior to surgery if necessary as children with craniosynostosis have a higher risk for other medical issues. Even if treatment has already started, a second opinion can help guide your child's care.
Most insurance plans cover second opinions, but it's always a good idea to check your coverage to be sure. If you need help with that, just call us at (414) 266-6435.
