It's amazing what brilliant doctors can do, when they put their heads together .

My father’s a neurosurgeon and he actually helped separate a pair of Filipino craniopagus twins who were sent to the US for surgery. It’s truly amazing how much surgeons (and all healthcare workers) can do to heal people.

I had brain surgery at 17. The size of the team of healthcare professionals that worked on my case was unbelievable... Props to all the nurses and others who don't get the credit deserved.

It's kind of insane that the most common question about this new and complicated procedure is how were the parents able to pay for it. Worse, it's not even a silly question.

I can't imagine how terrifying the procedure was for the parents. The thought of losing both your daughters at once

The fact that he mentioned the whole team tells me he is not only a good doctor, he is a humble person too.

I really respect these surgeon’s philosophical approach “innovation not for innovation’s sake but to help kids.” You would be SHOCKED at how many doctors in this field don’t feel this way.

This is absolutely incredible! What stood out to me even more was that Dr. Heuer acknowledged the team that helped with this procedure. The picture towards the end where we see everyone who was involved made me tear up a bit - people who are in the healthcare field have my utmost respect and admiration! 🙏

I love when they show the entire team - it takes the teamwork of dozens of humans to make something like this possible on top of the skill of the surgeons. Kudos to all the hospital staff involved!

That's the hospital my platelet donations have gone to several times! It's wonderful to see this incredible operation being performed and giving these kids a chance at a much easier life than they would have had otherwise.

Bless the parents for intervening at such a young age regardless, can't imagine the humongous costs they must've gone through.

The doctor saying this is a team effort shows how humble these doctors are. It takes a village to complete these surgeries and also amazing how science has advanced to successfully separate conjoined twins.

The skill and years the surgeons have between themselves is- I am pretty certain - immeasurable. Props to them and the entire team.

"Save a child, save a lifetime" is such a powerful phrase - more people need to subscribe to that ideology!

I’ve followed Abby and Erin for years and watching their journey is nothing short of a miracle. They’re growing into two beautiful spunky young girls! Well done doctors, and well done to Abby and Erin’s family.

Modern surgery is so much less invasive than surgery even 10-20 years ago! I had a small tumor in my colon and the surgeon took it out with an endoscopy tool on a robotic surgery unit. Granted the unit looked straight out of an alien space ship ready to probe patients (which it does in a way) but before it’s invention and use in surgery, patients like me had to have a fully open abdominal surgery with a colostomy bag installed and several months of recovery. Compare that to the couple of months I took to recover without needing a colostomy bag and it’s just amazing!

The fact that both doctors could describe such a process in layman’s terms shows just how knowledgeable they are.
