A 23-month-old boy is back on his feet after having surgery for a rare condition called craniosynostosis.

WPVI reports that just two days after having major skull surgery on October 16, Heather Figeuroa's son Branson was walking in Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.

Figeuroa says Branson was born with a birth defect in which the bones in a baby's skull join together too early. Branson is now back home smiling and doing great.

Figeuroa says she's been sharing Branson's progress to raise awareness about craniosynostosis.
