Craniosynostosis, Take 4....

Monday October 5, 2009 Gabe had his 4th surgery for craniosynostosis. Gabe's surgery in June failed and his skull was depressed from where it was post op. Gabe's CT showed that he had no room left in his skull for his brain. After a long conversation with Dr. Frim we opted to do surgery again. To read the story go HERE and read back in October 2009.
