New STAR Cranial Center of Excellence Offers Cutting-Edge Treatment to Central Florida Infants
Date:7/28/2009

MAITLAND, Fla., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The STAR Cranial Center of Excellence, a specialized provider of treatment for infants with plagiocephaly and other head shape abnormalities, opened a third location on June 1, 2009 in Maitland, Florida. The Center currently also has offices in the Baltimore and Dallas areas, and has treated thousands of infants with STARband(R) cranial remolding orthoses, also commonly referred to as a cranial helmets or headbands.

The new Maitland location will offer Central Florida infants access to cutting-edge cranial remolding treatment and clinical expertise, as well as the potential to positively affect families and healthcare providers across the globe.

STAR Cranial Center of Excellence practitioners offer an unparalleled level of expertise in treating infants with deformational plagiocephaly, which is the flattening of one side of the head, as well as related conditions, such as brachycephaly, which is the flattening and widening of the back side of the head.

Plagiocephaly can develop as a result of babies resting for prolonged periods in one position in an infant carrier or crib. It can also be acquired as a result of in-utero positioning, common in cases of twins or multiple births. Following a referral from a pediatrician, neurosurgeon, or other specialist, infants with plagiocephaly or a related condition are evaluated by a practitioner at the STAR Cranial Center of Excellence, scanned with the state-of-the-art eye safe laser STARscanner, and treated when necessary with a STARband cranial remolding orthosis. In cases where an infant's plagiocephaly is considered mild, or if the practitioner believes the infant is young enough, the practitioner may recommend that the patient be rescanned after several weeks of repositioning efforts to see if the infant's head shape improves without STARband treatment.
