Earlier this week, an American neurosurgeon flew to the U.K. to evaluate terminally ill baby Charlie Gard after a so-called E.U. “High Court” ruled the infant should be allowed to die.
Dr. Michio Hirano spent hours with Charlie and determined his experimental therapy could potentially help treat the baby. Charlie suffers from a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial depletion syndrome and has apparently suffered brain damage.
Dr. Hirano disagrees with British doctors that Charlie has suffered “irreversible brain damage.”
But the British doctors at the hospital that has been treating Charlie are still “unconvinced” by Dr. Hirano’s assessment and believe he should be allowed to “die with dignity,” according to the Telegraph.
