What is Spina Bifida?

Spina bifida is a congenital disability when the spine and spinal cord don't form properly. This is a kind of birth defect that affects the neural tube. The neural tube is a structure in an unborn baby that develops into the brain, spinal cord, and surrounding tissues.

When the neural tube doesn't close all the way, the backbone protecting the spinal cord does not form and close as it should. This often results in damage to the nerves and the spinal cord.

How is the Procedure Performed?

The two main spina bifida treatment options are fetal surgery during pregnancy or surgery on the baby right after birth.

Spina Bifida surgery after birth (Postnatal Spina Bifida Repair)  

During postnatal spina bifida surgery, your pregnancy is monitored, and a cesarean delivery is scheduled at 37 weeks.

  • Usually, spina bifida is treated through a surgical procedure within 24-48 hours after the baby is born
  • Your child will undergo general anesthesia
  • If present, the myelomeningocele (MMC) sac is removed by the Pediatric Neurosurgeon 
  • To protect the spinal cord, the specialist closes the surrounding tissue and skin over the defect
  • Post-surgery, the baby receives care in our Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit (N/IICU)

Spina Bifida surgery before birth (Prenatal Spina Bifida Repair)  

Prenatal repair of MMC prevents further damage as spinal cord damage progresses during gestation.

A prenatal repair could offer significantly better results than traditional postnatal repair:

  • It helps decrease the necessity of draining fluid from the brain through ventricular shunting
  • It reduces the incidence/severity of neurological effects, including impaired motor and sensory function of the legs
  • It improves mobility and the chances that a child will be able to walk independently 
  • It reverses the hindbrain herniation component of the Arnold-Chiari II malformation

Who is the Right Doctor for Spina Bifida Treatment?

Children with Spina Bifida are often cared for by various medical professionals, including a Neurologist, Orthopaedist, and Physical Therapist.

What is the Usual Success Rate for this Procedure?

Prenatal surgery significantly improves the rate of ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement (44% prenatal surgery versus 84% postnatal), hindbrain herniation at 12 months of age (64% prenatal versus 96% postnatal), and independent walking at 30 months of age (45% prenatal versus 24% postnatal).

What is included in the cost of Spina Bifida Treatment?

The cost of Spina Bifida treatment includes the following:

  • Preoperative diagnostic tests cost, including Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MSAFP) tests, maternal blood tests, and blood tests.
  • Surgery cost
  • Post-Operative cost (depends on the number of follow-up sessions)
  • Medicine cost (anti-inflammatory, painkillers, etc.)
  • Patient's hospital stay

What are the factors affecting cost of Spina Bifida Treatment?

The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:

  • Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing, or Single room)
  • The severity of the disease
  • Post-surgical complication, if it happens (such as Infection, bleeding, etc.)
  • Cost of blood products (if required)
  • Age of the patient
  • An extended stay at the hospital
  • Post-operational physiotherapy sessions 
  • Cost of accommodation during follow-ups, in case the patient is not a local resident
