Spina Bifida (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
People with spina bifida should be seen frequently by the appropriate professionals so that they can be checked for progressing deformities, disabilities, or complications that may require intervention. A specialized “clinic” can assemble the needed professionals, so parents are not spending all of their time taking the child for medical attention.
