Surgery day has finally arrived for conjoined twins Abigail and Micaela. More than 30 team members crowd the operating room for the marathon procedure to separate the girls, who are attached at the head. The twins’ shared anatomy complicates the anesthesia. Surgeons make a surprise discovery and must make a tough call. The twins’ mother is joined by a supportive crowd as she waits outside the hospital, praying for good news.
"Separating Conjoined Twins" is a five part video series that chronicles their journey from birth to an operation that will attempt to separate them and beyond. Follow their story at https://health.ucdavis.edu/children/conjoined-twins/
