  1. Dr Jeelani and your team; congratulations and well done for the years of hard work that must have been undertaken to achieve such an incredible medical feat. I hope the outcome and knowledge that millions of children will be saved over time from this accomplishment is rewarding enough

  2. Wow this is a story to follow, a six month waiting time to see if it worked is hectic. How did the poor mother carry twins joined like that? This whole thing is amazing.

  3. I'm glad technology has improved surgeons' ability to separate conjoined twins. There must be ways to prevent it from happening in the first place.

  4. A great medical team. Hope the kids live a normal life and for long. Congratulations to Doctor Jeelani who showed "everything is possible, you need only practice".

  5. Incredible. I hope the work these medical teams have done blesses these children with a good chance in life, and already it is clear just how big the barriers to that were before their surgery. Thankyou brave surgical teams for having the expertise and courage to do this work, and here’s wishing these children a successful rehabilitation into a wonderful life as independent youngsters.
