Your child’s health is your top priority. It’s ours too.
An innovator in the field, University Health System is among the nation’s leading health care centers for diagnosing, treating, and developing advanced treatment methods to provide unmatched, quality care for infants with craniosynostosis. Our nationally distinguished physician, Dr. David Jimenez, has pioneered and developed a minimally-invasive treatment option, called Endoscopic Strip Craniectomies, for babies with Craniosynostosis, and has performed this procedure more than any other surgeon in the world.
Our Craniosynostosis Treatment
Our unique approach decreases complications, surgical trauma, and need for transfusions during surgery, producing exceptional results with less overall risk to your baby. In our procedure, the prematurely closed suture is released, allowing the rapidly growing brain to remodel the skull and face to a normal shape. If there's no underlying brain abnormality, the surgery allows your baby’s brain adequate space to grow and develop.
Parents from all over the world have come to Dr. Jimenez to find a solution. We encourage you to learn more about the different types of craniosynostosis by reviewing before and after photos of babies we have cared for. We also have video testimonials from some of the hundreds of parents who have put their trust in us over the past decade.
