"8-Year-Old 'Medical Miracle' Surprised With Trip To Disney World"
Doctors at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital performed a ‘medical miracle’ on an 8-year-old girl. Born with bladder agenesis and both kidneys blocked, she underwent successful surgery in 2015, where Jeffrey Stock, MD, associate clinical professor of urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, built her an artificial bladder. “There actually have been only about 20 documented cases of babies surviving with this rare condition,” said Jessica Reid-Adam, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics, nephrology, and hypertension at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Needing a life-saving kidney transplant, she underwent a second surgery on January 16, with her father as her donor. In recovery and visited by none other than Minnie Mouse herself, she is due to be discharged today.
