Two unborn babies' spines repaired in womb in UK surgery first
BBC News ----------- Two unborn babies have had their spines repaired by surgeons - weeks before they were born. The operations - which are the first ever of their kind in the UK - were carried out by a team of 30 doctors at University College Hospital in London.
