(JNS) Doctors at the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva have made Israeli medical history, successfully separating twins that had been conjoined at the head.
The twelve-hour operation was carried out on the 2nd and involved fifty staff members from a variety of medical fields, including experts from abroad.
The twins were born in August 2020, with separate brains but a shared skull. In the months that followed, dedicated teams were set up to prepare for the massive undertaking of separating them, which was carried out in stages.
Medical staff used sophisticated 3D models to practice the delicate procedure.
