Safa and Marwah Ullah, two year old twins, who were joined at the head, have been separated after a 50hr surgery spread across a five month period.

The Metro Uk reported that the surgery took around 100 doctors and was done at the Great Ormond Street in London.

The process of separation began last October and was successfully completed on February 19, 2019.

It is reported that a 3D prototype of the twins brain was used for practice before doctors started work on the Girls.

A Virtual Reality was also used to create an exact replica of the girls anatomy which allowed doctors to visualise what was in store for them.

Both girls are now doing well after the surgery and live with their Mum Zainab Bibi, 34, grandfather Mohammad Sadat Hussain, 57, and Uncle Mohammad Idrees, in a London address.

They lost their father as a result of heart attack while their Mother was pregnant.

The mother-of-nine, Bibi, from Charsada in Pakistan said,

We are indebted to the hospital and to the staff, and we would like to thank them for everything they have done. We are extremely excited about the future.
