About the offer

Spina bifida is a congenital condition that impacts the spinal cord's growth, resulting in the division of vertebrae. This condition leaves the spinal cord unprotected by bone tissue, which can disrupt cerebrospinal fluid movement, infections, and brain damage. In addition, in some cases, the spinal cord's membranes extend beyond the spine's boundaries, creating a hernia. If left untreated, spina bifida can cause mental retardation, developmental delays, and motor disorders. As a ruse, the surgery is done within 24-48 hours after delivery to lower the risk of infection and safeguard the spinal cord from further injury. However, doctors can perform a Spina Bifida operation later if not done on time. The neurosurgeon makes an incision to access the spinal cord and separates the nerve pathways and hernia from the scar tissue during the procedure. During treatment, doctors may use a shunt to remove excess cerebrospinal fluid that puts pressure on nerve membranes. This shunt needs to be changed periodically as the child grows. Next, doctors use one of several methods to close a defect in the bone, muscles, and ligaments. The material used for repairing a hernia depends on its size and type. It can include autotomy plastic, surrounding tissues, or synthetic materials. After that, a treatment plan will be implemented to restore sensitivity, movement, and the normalization of pelvic organs.
