The Interdisciplinary Management of Crouzon Syndrome From Birth To Adulthood

Session Chair: Jesse A. Taylor, MD
Session Co-Chair: Stephen Beals, MD

Stephen Beals - Treatment Protocol
Ruth Bristol - Neurosurgical Aspects of Treating Crouzon Syndrome
Jesse Taylor - Early Cranial Expansion - Anterior vs. Posterior
Jim Bradley - Midfacial Advancement - Timing / Lefort III vs. Monobloc
Kathy Kapp-Simon - Neuropsychological Issues in Crouzon Syndrome

Crouzon Syndrome remains a challenge to craniofacial teams, affecting many aspects of development including skull formation, visual impairment, hearing loss, brain development and breathing. This panel will present treatment protocols for the interdisciplinary management of the patient through all phases of development, from birth to adulthood. Panelists will review the parameters of care related to the assessment and treatment of individuals with Crouzon Syndrome and attendees will learn how to manage these patients over the course of their lifetime.

Goal: To provide a forum focused on interdisciplinary research and standards of care related to assessment and treatment of individuals with Crouzon Syndrome.

Objective: Attendees will be able to discuss at least three parameters of care considerations related to diagnosis or treatment of individuals with Crouzon Syndrome.
