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.
Watch all three episodes of “Twice Born: Stories from the Special Delivery Unit,” a gripping documentary series that follows four families as they seek treatment at CHOP's Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment.
