Spina bifida – our treatment

The severity of spina bifida can vary depending on the form of the condition and therefore require different forms of therapy. It is thus important that your child is cared for at a paediatric clinic that guarantees interdisciplinary care.

At Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth, your child will receive long-term and sensitive care from an interdisciplinary team of experienced specialists in the fields of neuropaediatrics, neurosurgery, neuro-radiology, paediatric orthopaedics, spinal surgery and neuro-urology. This comprehensive collaboration enables us to create the optimal treatment plan for your child. As your child grows, conservative and often also surgical treatment measures, which we bring together under one roof, become necessary, depending on the severity.

Conservative treatment methods

Surgical therapy

If an operation becomes necessary for your child, we work hand in hand with our experienced surgeons from the neurosurgery department as well as with the paediatric orthopaedic surgeons in our hospital or in Munich Harlaching. Here we offer your child a wide range of modern and gentle surgical procedures.
