Six-month-old triplets, two identical and one fraternal, were all born with a rare skull condition known as craniosynostosis. On May 1, 2017, at Stony Brook University Hospital, doctors and the babies' parents talked about the first-ever reported surgery on triplets with the condition. The surgery was conducted at Stony Brook Children's Hospital about four months ago, when the infants were about 2 months old. (Credit: News 12 Long Island)
