Spina Bifida Program at Children's Hospital

Respecting the needs of patients with a life-long condition, our staff takes a “total life” approach to treatment of spina bifida. Located at Children's Hospital, the program offers more than 40 years of experience in meeting the needs of children with spina bifida.

Children's Hospital pioneered the prenatal surgical repair of spina bifida. In 2016, members of our surgical team traveled to Brisbane, Australia, to help launch a similar program at Mater Mother's Hospital.

Learn more about our in-utero treatment of myelomeningocele, the most common form of spina bifida.
