Keith's Story:

Keith Frey was diagnosed with scaphocephaly due to sagittal craniosynostosis, when he was only 2 months old.  His parents had never heard of craniosynostosis so they began investigating the condition on the web.

Their search ended with Drs. Rhodes and Tye at the Center for Craniofacial Care at VCU Medical Center.

He was only six months old when he underwent surgery, and according to his mom, “Keith had his surgery on a Wednesday and we were home with him on Friday evening.”
