Fetus Undergoes Surgery in the Womb

Meet Kolby. He underwent a life-changing surgery at Ochsner Medical Center to correct the myelomeningocele birth defect, the most serious form of spina bifida... 12 weeks before he was born. Ochsner's fetal surgery team operated on the one pound, 23-week-old fetus while still in his mother's uterus.
