The operation took place in a hospital in London on the hometown of a mother named Bethan Simpson, 26, from Chelmsford, northeast England.
The fetus is fractured by the spina bifida (spina bifida), a malfunction of the spinal cord that causes it to stop growing normally and cause fractures.
The story began when the mother was in the 20th week of pregnancy, while the mother was performing routine tests, when the fetus's head was not normal, and then the condition was diagnosed with the disease that affects the child's ability to walk normally.
The mother said that the doctors put it in front of three options: to continue pregnancy, to get rid of the fetus, or to perform "fetal surgery" to repair this defect before birth.
When she chose surgery, she had to go through many tests to make sure she and her fetus were eligible for the surgery. She had surgery on January 8.
The team removed the fetus from the mother's womb, repaired the spinal cord, and then safely brought her daughter back to the womb to complete the pregnancy.
The mother said: The process succeeded, and the brain of the fetus seems normal, and called parents who go through similar conditions not to terminate the pregnancy; because this disease can be cured. Simpson is the fourth woman in Britain to undergo the operation
