My second and current pregnancy resulted in severe spd. What are the treatments for it after I deliver and what does surgical repair entail?

In brief: Minimal/extensive

The best treatments are with an expert in occupational therapy, and there are no good studies on successful outcome.
Surgical therapy is controversial, and you would need to find a regional orthopedic expert who has done many cases. I know of no such orthopedist, but perhaps one exists.
