(iWIDK By Alex Dorian) – Ah yes, the wonders of modern medicine.
Dominic Pio Gundrum, a seven-month-old born with a brain protrusion and a Tessier facial cleft, is back at home in Wisconsin after several months of treatment at Boston Children’s Hospital.
A Tessier facial cleft is a large, triangular gap running from the upper lip, behind the nose and up into the forehead.
According to Huffington Post, the hospital performed a “seven-hour operation to remove the encephalocele [protrusion], close the skull, repair the Tessier cleft, and bring the baby’s facial features together.”
The Doctor responsible for the surgery, Dr. Meara, still monitors Dominic from Boston by way of a mobile robot.
