A plastic surgeon who saved the life of a child with autism is making a big splash in Miami.
Juan Garcia-Carrillo is one of the few surgeons working in the city who treats patients with autism.
In a video that’s been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube, Garcia-Diaz shows off his technique on a 10-month-old boy who has autism.
“When I first started doing this surgery, the doctor didn’t believe me,” Garcia-Garcia-Carpillo said in the video.
“I did a lot of research and I told him that he was wrong, that this was going to work.”
García-Carmillo said the boy was on a routine visit to a local playground when he suddenly started crying.
He also had seizures and was very sensitive.
After he was taken to the hospital, the boy began to recover and started to learn to communicate.
After the surgery, Garcia was given an award by the Autism Society of Miami for his work.
“We have so many people who have autism that have a lot to offer, but they are often ignored and it’s not accepted,” Garcia said.
Garcío-Cortez said his parents were not always happy about the surgery.
He said the surgery was done in the same hospital where his father died from lung cancer in 2014.
Garaños father had been battling lung cancer since 2007 and died in the hospital.
“I remember when I first got the phone call, it was like Christmas morning.
I went to the phone booth and was overwhelmed with joy,” Garcia explained.
Geraldo-Cayla Garcia was one of three children in his family.
He had autism and the surgery he had performed saved his life.
“He had no idea how it would work.
He thought it was going a bit too fast and that it was too painful, and it was just the opposite.
He was just happy to be able to give his son the gift of life and to save his life,” Garcia told Miami ABC affiliate WPLG.
Gale was a member of the same kindergarten class as the boy.
He’s not the only one who has worked with autistic kids.
There’s also a plastic surgeon in Miami named Juan Garcia-Castillo.
He works with children with special needs, according to Miami’s ABC affiliate, WPLX.
“They can’t do what they want, they can’t speak up.
And when they’re having those moments, they cry,” Garcia added.
