Treatment depends on your baby’s case and how he is developing. Your baby does not need surgery.
The most common treatments include:
Your baby might see a neurosurgeon (brain surgeon) to make sure he/she does not have a more serious condition called craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis is when 2 or more bones in the skull fuse together earlier than they should. The brain continues to grow normally, but the head does not.
If you follow the doctor’s treatment plan, your baby’s head should likely round out by the time he starts school.
