Montefiore helps 12-year-old boy with tumor get his vision back

Posted: Updated:

Montefiore Health Systems is to thank for a life-changing surgery for a sixth-grade boy.

Nasire Williams, 12, has big dreams for when he grows up. However, none of that would have been possible if it wasn't for life-saving surgery.

Doctors needed to remove a tumor because it had gotten so bad, Williams was losing his sight.

Williams saw a specialist at Montefiore Health Systems that we're able to remove the tumor through his nose without having to make any outside cuts.

"I feel good like my normal self again. I can see better with less headaches," said Williams.
