Spina Bifida is one of the most devastating of all birth defects and it affects approximately one out of every 1,000 newborns in the Saint Louis area. A neural tube disorder that is both genetically and environmentally determined, spina bifida can cause complex and serious health issues in numerous systems within the body. Children born with spina bifida may need multiple surgeries and other extensive medical care throughout their lifetimes to address orthopedic, urological, neurological and other issues. However, thanks to advances in medical technology, most children born with spina bifida today live well into adulthood and are thriving members of society.
