VCU performs separation surgery on conjoined twins
Date:11/8/2011

n to another operating room and teams completed the final steps of the surgical process on each child. The girls were then transported to individual rooms in the pediatric intensive care unit for recovery after the procedure.

"One of the things that is encouraging for us is that there's such a high potential for them to be functioning, freely mobile, very active individual girls," said Lanning. "Once we feel like they're medically stable, and think that it's safe, we'll try to get them potentially in the same room and near each other for their sake and for mom's sake."

Critical members of the separation surgical team also included Jennifer Rhodes, M.D., assistant professor in the VCU Department of Surgery's Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and director of Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU's Center for Craniofacial Care; Robert Fisher, M.D., professor of surgery and director of the liver transplant program; and Claudio Oiticica, M.D., associate professor of surgery.

"The impact that we can have in these third world countries is dramatic when you talk about specific surgical pathology," said Lanning. "We as medical care providers learn a tremendous amount. There are many complex problems that we see here in the states on occasion but see with somewhat regularity in other countries. We gain experience in caring for these children whether they're in their own countries or they're up here."
