Girl 'well' after separation op

An Indian girl who had surgery to separate her from her partially\
developed twin is out of intensive care and recovering well, her
doctors say.

Lakshmi Tatma was joined at the pelvis to what was, in effect, a headless,
undeveloped twin.

A team of surgeons in the southern city of Bangalore operated on Lakshmi
for 27 hours last week to separate her spinal column and kidney from her

Her extra pairs of arms and legs were also removed in the operation.

Dr Sharan Patil, the lead surgeon, said Lakshmi was now breathing on her
own. "We've taken her off all the monitoring," he told reporters. "She is
coping very well, feels stable and she's being carried around by her mother
and her father."
