General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello and welcome to healthcare forum naveen.
Myelomeningocele is a type of neural tube defect in which spinal cord and nerve roots are not protected by backbone and they are at constant risk of infection and there will be complication like paralysis, urinary and stool incontinence.
I am sorry to say that there is no treatment except surgery for the condition as it is a congenital anatomical defect.
Best wishes for your daughter's health.
