Separating Conjoined Twins: Dr. Gregory Heuer and Dr. Jesse Taylor

November 14, 2018

Abby and Erin Delaney were born in the Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on July 24, 2016. The twins had a very rare condition called craniopagus – which means they were connected at the tops of their heads. In this episode, Madeline talks to Dr. Gregory Heuer and Dr. Jesse Taylor, who led the incredible team of nearly 30 people that successfully separated the twins during an 11-hour surgery. Madeline also gets an update on how Abby and Erin are doing today.
