Oklahoma Children's Hospital Neurosurgeon Performs Oklahoma's First Endoscopic Craniosynostosis

OKLAHOMA CITY - A 5-month-old baby boy is the first in Oklahoma to undergo a special type of brain surgery.

The operation was done at The Children’s Hospital by Joanna Gernsback M.D., a Pediatric Neurosurgeon.

Alejandro Tayahua began showing signs of a condition known as craniosynostosis, a condition where bones in the head grow together too early, which eventually leads to an abnormally shaped head and possible vision issues.
