Community Information Session – Spina Bifida Occulta (SBO)

It’s not uncommon to be diagnosed with Spina Bifida Occulta (SBO) as an adult. While this is considered a mild form of Spina Bifida, many people who have SBO struggle with debilitating pain and feel frustration over the lack of information, resources, and awareness. The Spina Bifida Association offered a Community Information Session on the topic of Spina Bifida Occulta. The presentation was moderated by Brad Dicianno, MD who was joined by Robin Bowman, MD and Christopher Standaert, MD.
