In brief: Craniosynostosis =

premature fusion of one or more sutures, fibrous joints between the plates of bone in an infant's skull.
Pediatric neurosurgeons perform minimally invasive surgery followed by helmet molding therapy for infants 3 months & younger. For older infants, they perform calvarial vault remodeling.Craniosynostosis is usually sporadic, but can occur in a variety of inheritable genetic syndromes.
