Default Re:When to start laser treatment

Thanks Carrie for responding. We live in Grosse Pointe Woods. We went to Children's Hospital to see a plastic surgeon, however, she recommended waiting until he was 1-2 years of age before starting treatment. Is the MRI used to determine potential brain involvement? If so, why do they wait six months? My husband and I work for different hospital systems (St. John and DMC). We have HAP insurance. I am not sure if Dr. Shaheen's practice would accept our insurance, but I am definately interested in the possibility of getting another opinion from him. Thanks for your information. Heather
