22 doctors separate Nigerian conjoined twins in India
Nigerian conjoined twins delivered at a Lagos hospital on the 8th of May 2017, have undergone a successful surgery in Bangalore, India, according to reports.
Obinna and Amarachi Ugwuoke, who already had two children, were shocked on seeing their twin babies, James and John, shortly after delivery. They’re fused at the stomach.
They had to be flown to India, where they were successfully separated, after a marathon operation that involved 22 specialists. According to the doctors, the twins can now live independent lives.
