Fetal surgeons reunite with patients in Miami

Associated Press Published: November 3, 2012

MIAMI (AP) — Fetal surgeons in Miami are reuniting with children who were treated in the womb.

The Fetal Therapy Center at the University of Miami's Jackson Memorial Medical Center will host Fetal Reunion 2012 on Saturday.

Among the children in attendance will be 2-year-old Leyna Gonzalez, who had a life-threatening tumor growing from her mouth when she was treated while inside her mother's womb. Doctors operated on her in utero, resecting the tumor and saving her life.

The fetal surgeons are Rubén Quintero and Eftichia Kontopoulos. The event is taking place at Jungle Island in Miami.
