Conjoined Twins [electronic resource]

One in every 100,000 sets of twins is born joined together. Some will be separated by complex, often risky surgical procedures. But what causes twins to be born this way? What can doctors do to help them? And what are the prospects for those who have no option but to spend their lives joined together? Filmed in the United States, South Africa, Russia, and Poland, this documentary tells the story of some of the most dramatic recent separations of conjoined twin babies-and interviews adult twins who remained conjoined. Today, ambitious surgeons are using new computer technology to help them undertake operations-like separating twins joined at the head-that would once have been considered impossible.
