Doctors from Đà Nẵng’s Paediatrics and Obstetrics Hospital and the International Pediatric Specialists Alliance (IPSAC) have successfully completed a surgery on a local three-month-old baby who had been born without an anus.
Prior to the surgery, the boy had used a temporary artificial anus that local doctors had created during his hospital stay.
He received an endoscopy surgery last week, and he has made a healthy recovery.
The surgery was part of a five-day charity drive last week to perform operations on 25 babies with genital malformations as well as digestive and urinary defects.
More than 150 newborn babies in the city and central region have received free surgeries from voluntary doctors of IPSAC since 2010.
