Thirteen-month-old twin boys were successfully separated in a surgery at a New York hospital, CNN reports. Jadon and Anias McDonald underwent surgery on Thursday. According to CNN, the surgery went for more than 16 hours at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. Afterwards, there were more hours of surgery to reconstruct their skulls.
Neurosurgeon Dr. James Goodrich led the surgery in his seventh separation surgery. CNN says Dr. Goodrich and his team used 3-D models of realistic conjoined skulls in an operating room to practice beforehand.
