Giving a girl a forehead

Grace Kabalenga had her skull removed in 2012 to prevent an infection from a surgery that tried to control her cranial deformity. In 2015, thanks to 3D technology, she underwent an operation to have a forehead implanted into her skull for the bone marrow to grow.

The operation also happened at the Tygerberg Academic Hospital.
