Baby with spina bifida in UK treated inside the womb

A baby girl in the UK diagnosed with spina bifida underwent a new corrective surgical procedure while inside the womb, an article on Mail Online stated November 17.

Reports said Gina Beddoe was notified during her 20th week of pregnancy that her baby Frankie Lavis had a serious case of spina bifida, the congenital defect where the spinal cord and spine are not properly developed. Beddoe and her husband opted to have an experimental surgery performed while the baby was still in the womb. The surgery to close the gap in the spine, performed just over 200 times, has cut complications from spina bifida in half when compared to performing surgery after birth. When Frankie was born last August, her parents were delighted to see her move her lower limbs normally.

Sadly many babies in the U.S. suffer from spina bifida defect as a result of Depakote exposure in the womb. If you believe this has happened to you or to a loved one, working with a lawyer is important, especially if you do not have sufficient funds to cover the expensive treatment.
