I suppose your child is suffering from meningomyelocele. If I am correct then it is best that your child undergoes surgery even if he is asymptomatic. As in future it might lead to complications. But I would leave that call on the surgeon who has seen your child. Surgery does have their own complications but we have to weigh the risk benefit ratio. Surgery if expensive in private can be done in government hospitals at reasonable costs.
