Zimbabwean Surgeons Successfully Separate Conjoined Twins


HARARE, Zimbabwe (AFP) – Zimbabwean surgeons have successfully separated conjoined twin babies, a first for the country’s down-at-heel health service and an achievement that has been hailed by President Robert Mugabe.

“The surgery went very well,” surgeon Bothwell Mbuwayesango who led the team of 50 medical personnel told AFP. “The babies are fine and are doing very well.”

The twin two-month-old babies were joined from the chest to the upper abdomen and shared a liver.

They were separated in an eight-hour operation at a state hospital in the capital Harare last week.

Surgical separations have been carried out for decades elsewhere, but with Zimbabwe’s state hospitals widely criticized for lacking vital equipment and drugs, politicians have jumped on this achievement.

Mugabe visited the twins and congratulated the all-local medical team who operated on the babies.
