This website was created to assist Spina Bifida patients, their families and their friends with up-to-date information about the condition. We have a summary of what Spina Bifida is, its symptoms and types. We have also gathered vital information on coping with the personal and financial effects of Spina Bifida, which may be difficult to deal with without the proper preparation.
Because Spina Bifida is very serious, it is extremely important to examine your medical treatment options. The Treatment Options section describes the different types of treatments available, such as surgery, physical therapy, and clinical trial information. In our Financial Assistance section, we discuss how patients and their families may be helped with medical bills and financial concerns if they used Depakote.
Lastly, in our causes section we discuss the new evidence indicating that Depakote use by pregnant mothers may cause Spina Bifida.
