Baby Born With 4 Limbs Successfully Operated in Adamawa

Post by SKOOKID on Fri Aug 09, 2013 4:26 pm

A team of 12 medical doctors led by a pediatric
consultant, Prof. Awal Abubakar on Wednesday
successfully completed surgery operation on a
baby girl born with four legs at the Federal Medical
Centre (FMC) Yola in Adamawa State.

The operation, which started Tuesday afternoon,
was completed early morning of Wednesday. This
is the first successful operation of its kind in the
medical history of Nigeria.

When The Guardian visited the hospital this
morning, the baby girl was still being attended to
by a team of medical workers at the pediatric ward
of the hospital.

Father of the baby, 29-year old Mani Maigi told The
Guardian at the hospital said that he lacked words
to express his appreciation to the hospital
management for not only paying the hospital bills
of his baby, but to ensure that the best medical
team was selected to carry out the operation.

"I almost lost hope on the future of my baby when
she was born with four legs, I think of the financial
implication and where to take the baby, but the
hospital assured me that the management will
handle the case. Initially I think it was the normal
unfulfilled promises we are familiar with in this
country, but today FMC Yola has not only fulfilled
its promise to me, they prove to the world that
Nigeria has the best brains in the world", he stated.
