US-based Nigerian doctor performs rare surgery – hailed by FG

The Federal Government has commended a US-based Nigerian surgeon, Dr Oluyinka Olutoye, who successfully removed tumour from a baby in her mother’s womb. The Senior Special Assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement said that Nigerian Government and people were proud of Olutoye.

Dabiri-Erewa noted that Olutoye and his partner, Dr Darrell Cass of the Texas Children’s Hospital, carried out the operation on a 23-week-old foetus in U.S. He said, “The baby, Lynlee Hope, who suffered from a tumour known as Sacrococcygeal Teratoma, was removed from her mother’s womb, operated on, and returned to the womb.

“The baby got healed and continued to grow until she was finally delivered at 36 weeks.’’ She stated that Buhari received the news of Dr Olutoye’s feat with excitement and fulfilment and was looking forward to meeting him. The special assistant commended Nigerians in the Diaspora for their roles in projecting Nigeria’s good image.
