Complex surgical operation successfully separates 11 months old Siamese twins.
The surgery started with an investigation technically known as scoping where they had to identify the exact organs that the twins shared. They found that while the vaginal opening was one, inside they had separate organs. Also, they found that the twins were conjoined at the pelvis. The procedure was complicated and therefore was to be carried out with extreme care since it involved separation of blood vessels, this explains why separation of the babies didn’t happen immediately.
