What Fetal Surgery can do for your Baby

Aug 17, 2007
After the legalization of abortion in America, fetal surgery found new paths to understanding a baby's development helping to save the fetus life instead of stop its growth.

Improvement in fetal surgery began in the early 1980s and continue evolving even today, when more pregnant women find answer to saving the life of an unborn baby instead of using science to abort it.

Fetal surgery is all about the efforts of mankind to preserve human life, although it has been used to end cases in which there is not a better alternative for the developing baby.

According to Department of Genetics Chairman at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Hymie Gordon, "all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception". and the growing of a developing baby must be a joyful experience.

Fetal surgery for spina bifida is only one of the ways in which science works in favor of your baby's life, decreasing the handicaps associated with this disease, protecting the fetus exposed to spinal tissue from damage resulting from intrauterine movement and amniotic fluid.

Spina bifida is the most common debilitating birth defect in the United States, diagnosed in nearly one of every 1,000 pregnancies, leading newborns to devastating lifelong physical disabilities in the majority of cases.

Even though not all cases are necessarily life-threatening, the incidence of the loss of feeling and physical weakness is often aggravated with paralysis in lower limbs, bowel and urinary dysfunction, worsening when water on the brain (hydrocephalus) is diagnosed

Although abortion is often referred to as your "right to choose", fetal surgery will always try to save an unborn baby's life by informing pregnant women of the benefits to preserve the integrity of the fetus and work together for a happy end.

Most of the fetal surgery procedures are relatively new, but it is expected that, as science is progressing, this type of surgery can resolve other fetal problems, without the risk of inducing a preterm labor and delivery in the early stage of pregnancy.

Spina bifida and other congenital spinal and brain disorders leading to neural tube defects (NTDs) have been successfully treated by means of fetal surgery, although birth defects can also be prevented by observing prenatal care.

The intake of folic acid and multivitamins, along with prenatal tests to detect spina bifida, such as the maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MSAFP) blood test, are just two of the ways to save your baby's life either with prevention or fetal surgery.
