Doctors say Erin and Abby Delaney were successfully separated and will be closely monitored.
A team of medical professionals successfully separated 10-month-old conjoined twins during an 11-hour surgery, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia said Tuesday.
The hospital said sisters Erin and Abby Delaney, of North Carolina, are recovering in the intensive care unit after last week’s procedure.
The surgery was carefully orchestrated, down to marking monitors and equipment with green or purple tape, one colour assigned to each girl.
