Conjoined Utah Twins Separated

Doctors have successfully separated four-year-old conjoined twins in Utah.

However, Kendra and Maliyah Herrin will have to undergo reconstructive surgery.

They were joined at the mid-torso, sharing a kidney, liver, pelvis, a pair of

legs, and part of the large intestine.

This is believed to be the first surgery on conjoined twins who shared a kidney. 

Surgeons plan to give each girl one leg and Kendra the kidney.
