What Is The Recovery After Occipital Knob Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Been looking around for the time of healing for the procedure of occipital knob reduction.

A: The time of healing after occipital knob skull reduction surgery depends on how you choose to define ‘healing’. I suspect you actually mean recovery as that is more relevant. True 100% healing of the tissues is 2 to 3 months. Recovery from the surgery is very different at 7 to 10 days maximum…if that.
