Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital present the Fetal Medicine Webinar series. These webinars will feature lectures provided by leading international experts in fetal surgery and will focus on some of the most interesting and relevant topics in this field. We invite physicians to participate in this stimulating educational opportunity to increase their knowledge on many different aspects of fetal medicine.
In this upcoming webinar participants will learn about different aspects of patients diagnosed with spina bifida. There will be a multidisciplinary approach to describe how to perform a detailed evaluation of the spina bifida in utero using ultrasound and MRI. We will focus on the challenges of surgically managing these cases and how to conduct follow-up. Our panel will explain the primary challenges that babies with these conditions face. We will also describe ways to improve the care of babies with spina bifida including which tests and evaluations are appropriate for this population. Additionally, we will discuss a clinical trial that focuses on the benefits of using stem cell therapy for spina bifida fetuses.
As a participant, you will have an opportunity to interact with the speakers during a Q&A session following the 15-minute lectures. There will be a panel discussion at the conclusion of each webinar. Once you complete the registration process, you will receive a link for the Zoom webinar. There is no cost for this webinar series.
