My Son has been diagnosed with Trigonocephaly (Synostosis of Metopic Suture). He is 20 days old born on 10 Sep 2007. I am not sure whether surgery is required or not. Attached is the CT scan and report. I lived in Delhi. Can any one suggest which hospital / Doctor I can contact for this. I have serached on net and came thru Amrita Instituite of Medical Science. Is is Good Hospital for such cases. Please suggest.
