Alycia's Story

My son was diagnosed two days after birth with craniosynostosis.

We got in very quickly to see Dr. Ruzicka, and were very impressed with his credentials and bedside manner. He made us feel better about the upcoming surgery that our son was going to need.

When the time came, our son was a little over two months old. The staff at the hospital was very professional and explained everything in a clear manner.

Even though it was a very emotional ordeal to hand our son over to the surgery nurse, we had complete faith and confidence that they would take the best care of our little baby.

After the surgery he went to the pediatric ICU. The nurses there were wonderful. They explained everything they were doing and were very loving towards our son and wanted to make sure he was comfortable and not in any kind of pain.

The doctors were also very helpful and each morning the staff would meet to discuss the course of action for our son. Everyone involved in his care had high standards and didn't hesitate to ask for our opinion when he was fussy or needed some extra TLC.

 It's been about a week and a half post-op and our son is doing great!

We saw Dr. Ruzicka for his post-op appointment and he was so happy by his progress. Our son will fully recover and we feel it's due to the talent of our surgeon and the nurses and Pediatricians that all helped in his care.

Thank You Dr. Ruzicka & Banner!
