Encephalocele Surgery

Encephalocele is a deformity of the nervous system involving the brain. These abnormalities can form on the front of the head, the back of the head or the nasal region. They are characterized by large bulges coming out of the head from defects in the skull. Surgery is meant to correct the cosmetic deformity, protect the brain and avoid complications of cerebrospinal fluid leakage or infection.
