The incident that made history in Turkish Medicine happened last February at Florence Nightingale.

Umut Ali Gül and Alperen İshak Günhan had ‘spina bifida’, in other words open spine, surgeries while in womb. The operations successfully took place at Florence Nightingale Hospital, the babies were born a month later and they have been, in their families’ words; ‘friends for life’. The babies who have survived the risk of being born crippled and have provided their families with so much joy, are getting better with each passing day. Prof. Kerem Özel, M.D., who has been one of the doctors of the surgery has stated “During the two weeks after birth, I was in a dreamlike state. It is very hard to describe the feelings I had at the time. It was like stepping on the moon.”
