Brief Answer:
Suggestions on trigonocephaly

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... from the records which you have uploaded I see that he also has got a mild motor delay, for which early stimulation therapy has been started already.

Trigonocephaly may or may not require corrective surgery. I can only see and decide only after seeing the MRI or CT Scan brain findings.

I suggest you upload the neuroimaging findings and the report of the scan, so that I can see and get back to you.

But if a neurosurgeon has already seen the scan and decided to go ahead with surgery, I suggest you follow his advice.

The cost of the surgery may be approximately 2 lakhs.
