The medical world is full of wonder and breakthrough. What we might not have thought was possible 50 years ago, 10 years ago, or even a couple years ago, might not only be possible now, but a fairly common occurrence.
In spring of 2021, a team of doctors performed a complex, life-saving surgery on an unborn fetus. The 26-week-old fetus, still in his mother's womb, had been faced with an incredibly rare heart condition that resulted in a growing, fluid-filled tumor attached to his heart.
Performed by the Cleveland Clinic, the surgery is among the first of its kind. Earlier this week, the news made its way to the Next F***ing Level Sub on Reddit, where it gained tons of praise and appreciation.
