Spina bifida happens before birth when a baby’s spinal tube does not close properly.
The spina bifida clinic is run four times a year. It is attended by staff from our medical neuro-disability team and therapists from our physiotherapy, nutrition and dietetics and occupational therapy departments, and a visiting orthotist.
The team will make recommendations about how best to manage your or your child’s spina bifida and discuss these with you and your family. We might also refer you to the orthotics clinic.
