At Dell Children’s gene therapy is saving babies’ lives. The ground-breaking treatment means children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA will live past the age of two. For one Austin family the gene therapy is the science of miracles.
Noah is the youngest patient at Dell Children’s to undergo a new gene therapy for SMA, under the care of Dr. Vedanarayanan.
Noah’s mother, Mikayla, calls him a miracle baby. Thanks to early detection and treatment, Dr. Vedanarayanan says his long-term prognosis is very good.
