Fetal Surgery for Spina Bifida
Mothers carrying a baby with spina bifida who choose fetal surgery require the most expert and carefully coordinated care from the time of diagnosis through care after your baby is born. Our team has performed more than 200 fetal surgeries on babies with myelomeningocele, maintaining optimal patient safety and following high standards for fetal surgery to ensure the best possible outcomes for you and your baby.
Tune in to PBS on Tuesday, March 31, to watch the first episode of “Twice Born: Stories from the Special Delivery Unit,” a three-part documentary series that offers the first look inside CHOP's Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment and its unique Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit.
