Craniosynostosis (craniostenosis) - treatment in Israeli clinics
Craniosynostosis in children is a premature fusion of the bones of the cranium, as a result of which the skull cannot expand normally, therefore, there is no free space for the growing brain of the child. The main symptoms of craniosynostosis are mental retardation of the baby in development, deformation of the skull, etc. As a rule, craniosynostosis (craniostenosis) makes itself felt from the first days of the birth of a child, and an experienced pediatrician will establish the pathology. But there are cases when craniostenosis is not diagnosed on time, which leads to serious consequences.
In Israeli clinics, experienced doctors detect craniosynostosis (craniostenosis) in children immediately, which allows treatment to begin on time. Surgical intervention is performed by the best surgeons who have education in pediatric surgery and many years of experience. When treating a disease such as craniostenosis, the operation is performed with the most gentle methods, and the prices are relatively low compared to the cost of services in European and American clinics.
Craniosynostosis (craniostenosis): diagnosis in Israeli clinics
The maximum positive results can be achieved if craniosynostosis is treated in newborns for a period of 3 to 10 months, although Israeli surgeons are seeking effective treatment of craniostenosis and operating on a patient at the age of 2 years. After 5 years, surgery can only be of a cosmetic nature, therefore it is very important to carry out high-quality diagnostics in time in order to identify craniosynostosis (craniostenosis), the treatment of which will have a favorable outcome.
Entering an Israeli medical center, a child with suspected craniosynostosis undergoes a doctor's consultation, as well as a multilevel examination. The main method that allows you to accurately determine developmental disorders and localization of pathology is computed tomography (CT). In the course of the study, it is possible to obtain a three-dimensional image of the entire skull, accurately establish a diagnosis, and develop a treatment plan for craniosynotosis (craniostenosis).
Craniosynostosis: treatment in Israel
A disease such as craniosynostosis (craniostenosis) requires surgical intervention regardless of the clinical picture. For children diagnosed with craniosynostosis, operations in Israeli clinics are performed by surgeons exclusively with the level of a professor or doctor of science, while the cost is one of the most acceptable in the world, prices are an order of magnitude lower than European ones with high quality services.
Israeli doctors use high-precision surgical techniques, as a result of which, patients with craniosynostosis almost never experience complications.
Surgical intervention involves carrying out such manipulations as:
- moving the deformed areas of the bones of the skull to the correct anatomical position, thereby increasing the cavity;
- dissection sutures (in the case when the deformity of the skull has not yet developed);
- correction of the shape of the skull with the developed deformity (reconstructive surgery).
Today, in Israeli clinics for for the treatment of craniostenosis, endoscopic techniques are introduced that allow minimizing blood loss and shortening the time spent in hospital.
The entire period of diagnosis of craniosynostosis (craniostenosis), treatment and recovery in the postoperative period takes about two weeks. At this time, comfortable conditions in the wards, high-level patient care services are provided for babies and parents, and all this at affordable prices. For comparison, the cost of treatment and stay of a child in clinics in the USA or Europe is about 30-40% higher.
