London doctors perform groundbreaking operation to save life of baby born FOUR MONTHS prematurely

‘Mr Mukhtar, 45, a consultant paediatric surgeon who led a 10-strong theatre team, said: “My mother and grandmother taught me never to give up on a child.

“It’s a real privilege to do this – it’s amazing work. It’s because we have this team of people who are really passionate about children’s survival and pushing the boundaries of what is humanly possible.”

Surgeons used specially adapted equipment because she was so small.”
