Babies with one body - level 2

Babies with one body - level 2

28-05-2013 14:00

Two twins from Peru who were joined were successfully separated. They will be able to live their lives individually and fully.

The twins were joined at their liver so the doctors had to wait for the right time to do the operation. They wanted both babies to have enough liver. The good thing was that each twin had its own heart and other organs. This made the operation a lot easier. But still, the operation took 30 doctors and nurses eight hours.

The proud parents expect to take their babies home soon. The little girls will be fine but a doctor will have to check them often.

Interesting words: twins (babies who are born together), liver (organ in your belly).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
