The primary treatment for craniosynostosis, Philadelphia type, is surgery. The goal of the surgery is to reshape the skull and allow for normal brain growth. Depending on the severity of the condition, the surgery may involve removing a portion of the skull, reshaping the skull, and/or using plates and screws to hold the skull in place. In some cases, a combination of these techniques may be used. In addition to surgery, physical therapy may be recommended to help with any motor delays or other issues that may arise due to the condition.
