After a successful operation, Bhutanese conjoined twins Nima and Dawa are now getting used to independent life although they prefer to remain side-by-side. Dr Joe Crameri from Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital said the 15-month-girls are ‘doing very well’ and ‘we feel quietly confident we will have a good result’. Dr Crameri adds there was a sense of relief ‘once we realised that we had the ability to divide the liver without compromising the girls and ultimately we didn’t have to anything fancy to the bowel’. The 15-month-old girls were successfully separated after a six-hour procedure by a team which involved up to 25 surgeons, nurses and anaesthetists.
