What Is The Cost Of Sagittal Skull Reduction Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am writing to inquire about Sagittal Skull Reduction Skull surgery. It states on your website that this can be done with bone burring of the sagittal ridge or/and with an implant. I was hoping you could take a look at the photos I attached and if you would be able to determine whether a significant change could be made through bone burring alone.
Also what would the cost of such a bone burring surgery be?
A: Thank you for your inquiry. Given the height of your sagittal ridge, reduction of it would be the only approach for it. The areas beside the ridge (parasagittal) seem to be of adequate height so sagittal reduction would be the only treatment option. How much it could be reduced would need to be preoperatively determined by a CT scan to check the thickness of the ridge but usually a 5 to 7mm reduction is possible.
I will have my assistant Camille pass along the cost of the surgery to you later today.
Dr. Barry Eppley
