Dr. Gage Discusses the Staging of Surgery for a Child with CFND Features

Posted by admin on February 10, 2016

I am so pleased to be able to contribute once more the the Children's Craiofacial Association blog. In this post, part of our regular "Ask the Doctor" feature, I answer one parent's questions regarding the order of surgical procedures for a child with craniofrontonasal dysplasia (CFND). While there are no hard and fast answers regarding in what order multiple surgical procedures should be done in children with these complex diagnoses, surgical decisions should be guided by what problems are most pressing for your child. These types of complex care decisions are best made in collaboration with an experienced multi-disciplinary craniofacial team such as the one I am fortunate to work with at Mercy Children's Hospital in St. Louis.
