Eleven month old conjoined twins from Guatemala are shown in this recent photograph. Surgeons at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles began operating on August 5, 2002 to separate the girls joined at the top of the head. Dr. Houman Hemmati assisted in the surgery. The rare and sometimes risky surgery on Maria Teresa and Maria de Jesus Quiej-Alvarez started about 8 a.m. and was expected to last more than 10 hours.
Recently, surgeons at the Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA performed a pro bono separation of the conjoined Guatemalan twins. The success story exemplifies the superior ability and compassion of the surgeons and hospital staff.
