Conjoined Twins Separated At A Tennessee Hospital

They are making a good recovery.

November 18 2016

The twin girls were born in in Enugu State, Nigeria in 2015. In January this year, Nigerian-based Linking Hands Foundation (LHF) referred them to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis where they travelled in June and underwent the life-saving surgery free of charge. 


According to CBS8, "the girls shared a colon, their kidneys were hooked, and their pelvises were fused and open, causing their legs to splay out at 90-degree angles."


Dr. William Warner told the publication he hopes "they'll be able to [walk and play and run]."
