Partnered with the Fetal Institiute, the physicians have been able to develop an altogether new surgical technique for babies diagnosed with Spina Bifida. In 2021 and 2022 they will be focused on increasing their patient accrual rate, the development of animated videos of surgeries for patient information and physician education. They will also be developing an endoscopic tower for their lab to aid in the ex-vivo surgical training modules. This equipment will be used to train in the Open Spina Bifida surgical technique, as well as for other surgical procedures that are currently in use and development. Publications from their work will be posted upon completion.
