Big Smiles

BIG SURGERIES BUT EVEN BIGGER SMILES It’s almost impossible not to fall for the pediatric patients at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital. Olaoluwakitan was one fine example. He was diagnosed with the ventricular septal defect eight days after birth. Olaoluwakitan was three years old at the time that we met.
