So sad. Just learned my child has craniofacial injuries. I have always tried to shelter and protect my kids. What now?

In brief: Get trained advice

Take your child to a fellowship trained plastics surgeon-one who has experience in pediatric reconstructive surgery.
Often this may require an otolaryngologist (ears, nose & throat), and ophthalmologist (eye) with plastics surgery fellowship training and a maxillofacial (dual trained dentists/doctors) working together to restore function and cosmetic appearance.

In brief: Craniofascial injury

First what is the cause? Xrays, and ct-head is in order as well as follow up with a nuerosurgeon or plastic surgeon who specializes in cranfascial injuries.
