Mulago Successfully Operates Siamese Twins.
After twenty hours of very complex surgery, a team of 20 specialists at Mulago National Specialized hospital have successfully separated 11 months old Siamese twins.
Dr Philis Khisa, one of the doctors involved in the operation said that the process started last week 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, at the large bone called the sacrum.
Dr. Rosemary Byanyima, the deputy Executive Director Mulago Hospital noted that though this is not the first time for the hospital to handle such an operation, this is the first complex case for medics to handle.
