Meet Nigerian Doctor Who Performed Operation On An Unborn Baby In US

Nigerian US based Doctor, Doctor Oluyinka Olutoye, is a great Nigerian, who is flying the flag and doing us proud in the USA. He has recently been appointed as Surgeon-in-Chief at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the United States of America.

Dr. Oluyinka is a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, in 1988. Where he earned his medical degree. Afterwards, he followed it with his PhD in anatomy from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, in 1996.

He completed his residency in general surgery at the Medical College of Virginia Hospitals, Virginia Commonwealth University, and his fellowship in pediatric surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pa.

Dr. Oluyinka O. Olutoye, was celebrated globally after leading a team of medical personnel who performed a surgery on a baby in-utero in a Texas hospital, US, in 2016. Dr. Oluyinka along the other doctors successfully removed the baby from the mother’s womb, operated on the baby and safely returned the baby back to the womb.

Dr. Oluyink and the other 21 doctors in the team were able to successfully removed a notorious tumor; sacrococcygeal tetratoma (a tumor growing in the tailbone of a fetus). After the surgery he then returned the fetus back to her mother’s womb who was 23 weeks old at the time of the operation.

The medical team upon successful surgery of the baby, continued to monitor the mother and baby during the gestation period to make sure that there are no complications or issues. Surprisingly, the mother put to bed safely after 36 weeks, the normal 9 months period. Both mother and child were healthy.

With his new confirmed appointment as the Surgeon-in-Chief at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the US, Dr. Olutoye will head 11 surgical departments. He will work to ensure Nationwide’s Children common mission, philosophy and excellent approach in patients care, dedication to outstanding clinical outcome, commitment to academic excellence and education of the next generation of leaders in children’s surgery.

Olutoye will now lead one of the largest children’s hospital surgery departments in the world.

He is currently making Nigeria his homeland proud unlike some other Nigerians who chose the other way of perpetuating criminal activities abroad. Do well to celebrate this genius and make him trend by sharing this post!
