A child’s skull is made up of a number of bones which allow for the growth of the brain. When these bones become fused or are otherwise unable to expand, the face and skull can become deformed, causing increased pressure on the brain that can affect mental development. During his time at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Dr. Glatt gained extensive experience treating children who suffered from a wide range of craniofacial deformities. Through pediatric plastic surgery, Dr. Glatt can revise these abnormalities of the head and face and help your child to achieve a more normal appearance.

Burns, Injuries, and Scars
Many scars resulting from burns and injuries are minor and will fade over time. However, special care is needed to reduce the appearance of scars following extensive injuries or burns. Dr. Glatt uses his highly skilled reconstructive pediatric plastic surgery techniques along with non-surgical treatments to reduce the appearance of these scars.
