In this procedure, the provider incises the scalp and elevates a depressed skull fracture, meaning a portion of skull bone moved inward into the brain. This service is for a compound or comminuted fracture that may involve a break in, or loss of, skin and the skull bone being broken into fragments, but the break does not reached the dura, the outer membrane covering the brain. The procedure corrects the noticeable depression in the skull to restore the normal appearance of the skull.
