The success story of medical tourism of a conjoined twins separation
Conjoined twins who shared spinal cords have successfully been separated during a gruelling eighteen-hour operation. The operation on one-year-old Nigerian sisters Hussaina and Hassana Badaru involved 40 doctors, and is only the fourth such separation to be carried out in the world. The pair, who were born with a condition called pygopagus in Kano, Nigeria, were joined at the hip and had spinal cord fusion, while also sharing a lower gastrointestinal passage and genitalia. Specialist surgeons at BLK Super Speciality Hospital in New Delhi, India, conducted the separation on August 12. They carried out two procedures – one to divide the twins, and one reconstructive operation. The procedures – which cost an estimated £64,000 and were paid for by a Nigerian philanthropist – were so risky that doctors were forced to conduct practice runs on dummies before attempting it for real.
There are a plethora of such successful cases, which make India the most trusted destination for medical services.
