Cranial Defect Repair

Cranial defects may occur due to congenital conditions, trauma and some cancers. Reconstruction of cranial defects can be very successful and vary greatly among patients.  

During cranial defect repair, also known as cranioplasty, synthetic implants are placed under the scalp to repair missing or deformed skull bones. Our surgeons will take care in evaluating the patient and deciding on the best implant for the patient’s condition.
