Conjoined twins separated by op
Conjoined twins from Bhutan have been separated after a six-hour operation at an Australian hospital.
The procedure divided the 15-month-old girls’ shared liver and reconstructed their abdomens.
Joe Crameri, the head of paediatric surgery at Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital, said the girls, Nima and Dawa, were doing well after the surgery.
The girls were joined from the lower chest to just above the pelvis.
