Myelomeningocele Repairs

Myelomeningocele repair (also known as meningocele repair) is surgery to repair birth defects of the spine and spinal membranes. Myelomeningocele and meningocele are types of spina bifida.

The repair will not correct the defects of the spine and spinal membranes, but will help prevent infection and further injury to the spinal cord and nerves.

Because most cases of spina bifida are known before birth, this repair is done shortly after the child is born.
