Luna, a 14-month old baby who was born with Pfeiffer Syndrome – a complex genetic disorder in which certain bones in the skull join together in early development. This prevents the skull from growing normally, affecting the shape of the head and face sometimes causing increased pressure around the brain. If left untreated, Pfeiffer Syndrome can cause developmental complications such as raised intra-cranial pressure causing recurrent headaches and problems with vision.
Through cranial remodelling, Luna’s skull wias re-shaped to allow more room for her brain to grow. Surgery was also crucial under the age of two as Luna’s bones are still soft and pliable, which will make them easier to move to create a normal head shape. This specialised surgery has given Luna a far better start in life.
