Neurosurgeon called & Orthopedic Surgeon
Our neurosurgeon, Dr. Meltzer called today. He wants us to see a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Newton. We are scheduled for April 13. He wants to have an expert look at her back and determine if she does have scoliosis, and if so, we will need to have an MRI done of her spine. He also informed me that the 'stuff' behind her eye is actually just what appears to be extra fat. This is likely an illusion caused by the fact that her head/eye is deformed from the Craniosynostosis. He doesn't think they should do anything about it during the surgery. We will likely still have the Ocular surgeon there, just in case.
