Nigerian conjoined twins, Hassana and Husaina have been separated at the King Abdullah Specialist Children’s Hospital in King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh.
 
A Saudi medical and surgical team has successfully completed the separation surgery in Saudi Arabia.

 
The surgery was carried out following directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud and His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister.
 
This is contained in a statement by Mohammed Alsahabi, Press Attache at the Royal Embassy Of Saudi Arabia in Abuja, a copy of which was made available to the PUNCH Online on Friday.

“The procedure, which began on Thursday morning, 29th February 2024, marked the culmination of meticulous planning and execution by a dedicated team of medical professionals.

“The Kano twins, who arrived in Riyadh on October 31, 2023, underwent comprehensive examinations that revealed shared areas in the lower abdomen, pelvis, lower spine, and lower spinal nerves.

“The surgical intervention unfolded in nine planned stages, lasting approximately 14 hours.

“A team comprising 38 consultants, specialists, technicians, and nursing staff specialising in anaesthesia, pediatric surgery, urology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, and pediatric neurosurgery collaborated seamlessly to ensure the success of this complex operation.

“This surgical milestone marked the 60th operation undertaken by the Saudi program for separating Siamese twins, a program that has provided care for 135 conjoined twins from 25 countries over the past 34 years,”
Alsahabi said.
 
He said the successful separation of Hassana and Husaina exemplifies the Kingdom’s commitment to advancing medical science and extending compassionate healthcare on a global scale.
