This is very difficult for me to answer without being able to see your baby son. Plagiocephaly is an increasing problem all over the world possibly as a result of babies now sleeping on their backs.In the vast majority [90% +] of babies the head shape returrns to normal with time. In a few severe cases the hemet is used and is also very effective. I am at a loss to explain why the neurosurgeon wants to oprerate here other than to correct your baby's facial bones and this seems a bit risky at this stage when he is growing rapidly. I advise you to get a second opinion ASAP and to specifically ask if the helmet treatment would do away with the need for any operation.
