Pediatric Cranial Reconstruction Center

Drs. Rick Redett and Alan CohenPediatric plastic reconstructive surgeon Richard Redett and pediatric neurosurgeon Alan Cohen.

The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Cranial Reconstruction Center (PCRC) combines the expertise and precision of pediatric specialists in neurosurgery, craniofacial plastic surgery, genetics, ophthalmology, neuroradiology, anesthesiology and rehabilitation to help children who have visible defects to their skull caused by trauma, craniofacial anomalies or due to previous brain surgery. 

Working collaboratively at a multidisciplinary clinic in the Children’s Center, our PCRC team meets with children and their families to evaluate and develop an individualized treatment plan to repair the skull and protect the brain, while taking into account the child’s future growth.

Our PCRC team uses the latest technology; including MRI, low-dose CT scans and 3D cameras, to help plan surgical procedures and provide the most appropriate and safest treatment for the patient. Depending on the age of the child, the surgical team will perform the reconstruction using the child’s own bone or a custom-made implant constructed of titanium, thermoplastics or other materials. Honoring our heritage as leaders in research, our team studies and develops new innovative surgical approaches for children with craniofacial anomalies.
