Conjoined twins separated with the help of virtual reality – BBC News

Brazilian twins who were joined at the head have been successfully separated with the help of virtual reality.

Three-year-olds Bernardo and Arthur Lima underwent seven surgeries, involving more than 27 hours of operating time in the final operation alone, and almost 100 medical staff.

For the first time, surgeons in separate countries wore headsets and operated in the same “virtual reality room” together.

The twins are now recovering well in hospital and will be supported with six months of rehabilitation.
