Infants undergoing treatment… with (physical) therapy and a helmet achieve a 95 percent success rate.” Treatment protocol must be individualized and based on age and severity for each child. A child with a more severe asymmetry must be considered earlier for helmet therapy than someone with more moderate misshaping.- Frank Vicari, MD - Pediatric Plastic/Craniofacial Surgeon at Advocate Children’s Hospital and Medical Director of the Head Shape Evaluation Clinic in Park Ridge, Illinois.
While prevention of positional plagiocephaly should be the main focus, cranial orthotic therapy, for the appropriately selected patient with high-moderate to severe positional plagiocephaly, does remain an effective tool in normalizing head shape and should remain as part of the therapeutic algorithm in the decision-making process when managing affected infants.- Chad Perlyn, MD - Chief, Division of Plastic Surgery, Florida International University College of Medicine
The interplay of form and function is recognized throughout nature. This principle could not be more true than in the relationship between the human skull and face. The development of ideal skull and facial skeletal form is critical for the function of the brain, vision, airway, mastication, and speech. When craniofacial structure is altered, proper functioning is drastically affected.”- Stephen P. Beals, MD and Edward F. Joganic, MD Craniofacial / Plastic Surgeons at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Barrow Neurological Institute. Phoenix, AZ
