Fetal Surgery Success

Fetal surgery on babies in the womb is becoming more commonplace, but they’re no less a miracle.  Baby Tyler is one such miracle.  At 26-weeks into pregnancy, surgeons operated on Tyler to correct a severe case of spina bifida—when the spinal cord and spine aren’t fully formed.  It can have devastating effects, including paralysis.  Doctors and the team kept Tyler floating in amniotic fluid inside the uterus, but exposed his back for the surgery.  The procedure was a success and eight weeks later Tyler was born.  He’s now one year old and both doctors and his parents believe this little boy will be able to walk.  Fetal surgery heals while demonstrating the beautiful humanity of the unborn child, featuring him as the primary patient.
