Initial Management at Presentation
- Surgery: When it has been determined that a patient’s clinical symptoms are most consistent with a tethered spinal cord, surgery is offered.
- Routine: Patients are seen 1 week later for wound observation and are allowed to return to normal activities within 2 weeks. Patients are then seen every year without specific testing.
