Our team of Board Certified Orthotists have treated over 1,500 children for plagiocephaly and craniosynostosis over the past 10 years. We utilize the STAR Family of Cranial Remolding Orthoses by Orthomerica. This cranial remolding orthosis (helmet) has been used to treat positional Plagiocephaly, Brachycephaly, Scaphocephaly and other head shape deformities in infants 3-18 months of age. It is the first cranial remolding orthosis with FDA clearance available to Orthotics and Prosthetics practitioners across the United States and around the globe.
We work closely with E. Christopher Troup, MD (Pediatric Neurosurgery) and Joseph C. Debrux Jr., MD, FACS (Plastic Surgery), who specialize in surgery for craniosynostosis.
