AN average of five to 10 babies are born each year with congenital anomalies (without any toilet passage) in Fiji, says Dr Josese Turagava.
The pediatric consultant at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital said their job included creating a functional passage for these children aged 0-15 years.
“We want to give them some form of life that is very normal,” Dr Turagava said.
“We create functional passages for those that don’t have it, some cases where there are urinary problems in kids.”
This week, a team of five pediatric specialists from Auckland is at the CWMH to conduct reconstructive surgery and clinics.
