A team of surgeons has successfully separated four-month-old twins conjoined at the Federal Medical Center (FMC) Yola, Adamawa state.

Auwal Abubakar, chief medical director of the hospital, said the exercise was conducted on May 14.

Speaking at a news conference in Yola, on Friday, Abubakar said it took the team four hours to perform the operation.

“We had a successful operation of conjoined female twins (omphilopagus). The development was recorded following a team work from different medical units,” he said.

Abubakar added that the twins have an “excellent” chance of survival.

He also called for more efforts to reduce the rate of medical tourism in the country, adding that Nigerian doctors are capable of competing with their counterparts in developed countries if given the necessary support.

“We must do well and reduce the number of people about to ask seeking medical treatment,” he said.

This is the second successful case of the surgery carried out in the hospital.
