Media Monday: Bentley's Story

At Boston Children's Hospital, Bentley Yoder underwent life-saving surgery to treat a rare, skull irregularity in May 2016. Dr. John Meara, with the help of a team of engineers and one 3-D printer, was able to save Bentley from a severe encephalocele. The rare and often fatal defect prevents the skull from forming properly. Thanks to cutting-edge technology in the form of models created with a 3-D printer Bentley is thriving.

Below is a video of this family's amazing story. The original story appeared on The Boston Globe website.

And for a deeper look into the steps it took to help Bentley, check out the video and resources created by Boston Children's Hospital here.
