Children with spina bifida, a birth defect of the spine and spinal cord, can display a range of abnormalities, ranging from mild defects to severe deformities. Whatever the circumstances, our specialists in the spina bifida clinic – part of our interdisciplinary Neurosciences Center – focus on maximizing function, minimizing future problems and optimizing the quality of your child's life. 

Thorough evaluation, complex surgical treatment, ongoing monitoring and family support throughout your child's development are all part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Services may include: 

  • Prenatal diagnostic ultrasound 
  • Corrective casts 
  • Orthotics 
  • Surgical procedures 

Multispecialty care for patients with spina bifida
