Spina Bifida Treatment Options

Almost 1,500 infants are born with spina bifida every year in the United States. Spina bifida is a birth defect that prevents the spinal cord and backbone from fully closing before the baby is born. In some cases, the defect can be discovered while the baby is still in the mother’s womb, but the majority of cases aren’t discovered until after birth. If your child was born with spina bifida, he or she may experience many side effects that could drastically impact his or her abilities and quality of life.

If your child was born with spina bifida and you took the prescription drug Depakote while you were pregnant, you may be able to hold the makers of Depakote responsible for your child’s condition. Contact a Depakote lawyer from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187 and learn more about the legal options available to you at this time.

Options for Treatment

If spina bifida is identified early on in a pregnancy, there are some alternative options for treatment. Unfortunately, many cases of spina bifida are not detected until the child is born. Some of the most common treatment options for spina bifida include:

  • Surgery, if the condition is caught / identified early
  • Physical therapy
  • Braces for certain joints
  • Shunts to drain fluid
