OUR ADAPTIVE TREATMENT PROGRAM

OUR ADAPTIVE TREATMENT PROGRAM

What makes us different?

At The Pediatric Head Shape Clinic we offer the highest quality, collaborative care by experienced practitioners. We are here because we care and we listen because we feel your concerns are important. We have invested in the best available technology and we put it to work to help guide your family through this short, but important stage of life.

Your free assessment - What to expect?

  • No referrals or prescriptions are required for your initial consultation, this is entirely free of charge.
  • We will provide a thorough physical exam and obtain 3D laser scanned diagnostics of your child’s head shape.
  • Once we have a good assessment of the head shape and 3D data we can discuss whether treatment is needed. Studies have shown that caliper measurements are not accurate for this condition (Steinbok P,J Craniofac Surg.2006 May;17(3). Our medical grade laser scanners are FDA regulated to be safe, valid and intra/inter-rater reliable.
  • Should treatment be required we will discuss and provide information on payment options and insurance coverage available
  • We use the best available published data to guide our recommendations to your family. Upon discussion of the data there are generally 3 options under our Adaptive Treatment Program.

When can infants start treatment?

The Optimum time for intervention is 3 – 6 months
however infants can be treated up to the age of 18 months providing their cranial sutures are still open.

How does our treatment program work?

Once we have a carried out an assessment of your baby’s head shape we discuss and agree on the best available treatment for you and your family:

  1. If there are no medical or cosmetic concerns:
    • We provide education on repositioning products and/or techniques and would suggest discharge.
  2. If the head shape is not severe for the age of child but there is potential for concern:
    • We would provide education on repositioning and may suggest and provide select preventative products and provide a follow up track the progress of your Childs headshape and another scan within 3 weeks of your initial consultation.
  3. If the shape is severe enough
    • We would recommend an adaptive cranial remodeling treatment program to suit you and your families needs.
