We recently spoke to one of our nurses, Erica Salazar, RN, MSN, FNB-BC, and asked her some questions about the Craniosynostosis clinic:
What can families expect when they come to the Craniosynostosis clinic?
"We will hold your hand as we diagnose your child. We will talk to you about all possible options. We will be there every step of the way from surgery to post op. You will most likely only have to travel to the clinic four times in the first year for treatment.”
What has been the most rewarding part of working in the Craniosynostosis clinic?
“It is always heart-warming to go back and look at the original pictures of our cranio patients. I remember all the anxieties the parents had. It is very rewarding to look at all the progress the patients have made; I love seeing how grateful and happy the whole family is that they made the decision to come here. I just love seeing every patient’s success story.”

As if this wasn’t enough, my jaw had a constant ache (like a bad headache).
