Separate Lives

Conjoined twins are rare, and of these only 5% born are joined at the head with a fused skull, termed craniopagus twins. Of these, most die before the age of one and the vast majority die in childhood.

Our Mission

Our mission is to dramatically improve these odds. Combining the expertise of world-class surgeons within the context of multi-disciplinary teams, pioneering research with world class facilities, we can provide families in this unique position the opportunity to return home with two healthy, separate children.

Who We Are

Technology and medical expertise have improved tremendously over the past few decades, such that many craniopagus twins can now be separated successfully.

Successful separation of craniopagus twins requires a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, physicians, imaging specialists, specialist nurses and allied health care professionals. Meet the founder, Mr Noor Ul Owase Jeelani and the teams involved in these complex operations.
