 Cranioplasty

Trauma from motor vehicle accidents and infection may often leave large defects in the skull creating significant irregularities and deformities in the scalp.  Working with Neurosurgeons, Plastic Surgeons can utilize bone grafts, titanium or plastic implants to recreate the normal contour of the skull and protect the underlying brain.  Tissue expanders (balloons) may need to be placed to stretch the scalp skin to accommodate the implant prior to the final reconstruction.  Customized implants may be used designed based on 3D CT scans to personalize your reconstruction needs.
