Facial and Skull Disorders
Disturbances of facial growth or deformity can be present at birth or develop over time or after trauma. Matt Hansen is part of the multidisciplinary Western Australian Craniofacial unit based at PMH that includes neurosurgeons, geneticists, ophthalmologists, dentists, orthodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The management of these conditions ranges from simple measures such as with the common condition of positional plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome of infancy), through to more complex multidisciplinary management of conditions such as Craniosynostosis, genetic syndromes, tumors and post traumatic deformities. Most children are assessed through PMH whilst adults are initially assessed through Matt’s practice in West Perth.
