Despite a large number of MMC patients, India lacks dedicated medical facilities to deal with this disorder. MMC continues to have severe health impacts with impacts being more severe in India.

MMC patients require care and counselling but lack adequate information, qualified guidance and means to the required treatment with the consequences being severe as a result of socio-economic reasons.

SCC is an attempt by experienced and qualified team of doctors to integrate all the MMC treatment and management skills with facilities under one roof

About

Meningomyelocele

Meningomyelocele, also commonly known as myelomeningocele, is a type of spina bifida. Spina bifida is a birth defect in which the spinal canal and the backbone don’t close before the baby is born.
This type of birth defect is also called a neural tube defect.

Spina Bifida Occulta

Spina bifida occulta (SBO) occurs during a baby’s development in its mother’s womb, usually in the first month of pregnancy.
In people with this condition, the bones of the spine, called vertebrae, don’t properly close.
That leaves small gaps that can expose the sensitive spinal column to injury. Spina bifida occurs in about 1 out of every 1,000 births.

Meningoceles

A meningocele is a birth defect where there is a sac protruding from the spinal column. The sac includes spinal fluid, but does not contain neural tissue. It may be covered with skin or with meninges. The sac often is visible from the outside of the back. Meningoceles are considered to be neural tube defects and are a form of spina bifida.
