Surgical correction for nonsyndromic craniosynostosis has continued to evolve over the last century. The criterion standard has remained open correction of the cranial deformities, and many techniques have been described that yield satisfactory results. However, technology has allowed for minimally invasive techniques to be developed with the aid of endoscopic visualization. With proper patient selection and the aid of postoperative helmet therapy, there is increasing evidence that supports these techniques' safety and efficacy. In this article, our purpose was to describe our algorithm for treating nonsyndromic craniosynostosis at Rady Children's Hospital.
