Baby Adam update

Surgeons with General Peds, Pediatric Otolaryngology, Urology and Ophthalmology will once again pool resources to help young Adam Paulraj or “Baby Adam.”

Leading the effort is Dr. John van Aalst, Craniofacial Plastic Surgeon with the Department of Surgery. Baby Adam was born in September 2011 in India with Bartsocas-Papas, a rare syndrome that caused him to be born without eyelids and fingers. He had a cleft palate, cleft lip and his legs were fused. Having gone through a number of surgeries at UNC last fall, his parents hope to raise $150K before his next scheduled surgery in mid-August.
