Caleb received spina bifida closure surgery to close the mass on his back.

Caleb’s surgery was a success! The mass on his back is no longer open, which will help prevent the possibility of infection and other spine complications.

“I am very happy when I see Caleb doing well,” said Caleb’s father. “Thanks for your support and love.”

“It is so sad to see my little son in pain. I’ll be very glad when I see him recover from treatment,” says the father of Caleb, a five-day-old boy from Kenya.

Caleb has spina bifida, also known as a neural tube defect, that caused an open cyst on his back. If untreated Caleb is likely to develop an infection, tethered cord, or kyphoscoliosis, which is an irregular curvature of the spine.
