Surgeons at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem separated conjoined twins in utero.

The babies shared a placenta and major blood vessels. Their lives were in danger in the womb of their 25-year-old mother, from a Palestinian village, who was in her 20th week of pregnancy.

The babies’ blood supply was separated using a laser device inserted in the womb.
