Myelo Clinic

We provide comprehensive care for children and teens with neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, tethered cord and caudal regression syndromes. Through our collaborative team approach, we are committed to making a difference for every child in our care and giving him or her the best quality of life possible.\

We have one focus: kids.

A diagnosis of spina bifida is life-altering. Children with spina bifida have complex medical issues involving multiple body systems such as the central nervous system, musculoskeletal system, urinary and intestinal systems.

Your child will have very specific needs at each stage of his life. We will be here for you every step of the way. We'll help you make informed decisions about advanced surgical treatments, ongoing therapies, daily challenges and the transition to adulthood.

A team approach.

We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of coordinated care, bridging the gap between primary and specialty care and connecting you to the appropriate medical and support services.

Our team includes board certified specialists in developmental and behavioral pediatrics, neurosurgery, urology, gastroenterology and orthopedics, as well as specialists in genetics, physical and occupational therapy and nutrition services.
