Infant with congenital thoracolumbar hemivertebrae and neurogenic bladder. What are treatment options?

My child is 7 months old. She has congenital thoracolumbar hemivertebrae and neurogenic bladder . Our local neurosugeon said her kyphoscoliosis due to thoracolumbar hemivertebrae is not correctable. Hence, the neurogenic bladder is also not correctable. At this juncture, we have no idea what to do and where to consult. Please guide me the correct plan of action regarding my child s case.

Thank you for posting your query.

It is clear that surgery is not possible, and this problem can not be completely cured. So, we have to aim for palliative treatment.

A consultation with a Urologist, specialising in neuro-urology, would be helpful. There are medications and minor procedures that could help your child, with urinary symptoms, and preventing any kidney damage.

Best wishes,
