Infant undergoes rare procedure to treat infection

Dr. Vinci Jones, who heads the pediatric surgery program at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip, solved the mystery of 7-week-old Dominic Belluscio's swollen, hardened abdomen, diagnosing him with a life-threatening infection that he treated surgically and with antibiotics. Part of the treatment was removing the infant's appendix, an extremely rare procedure in a patient so young. News 12 video (March 20, 2013)
