Bhubaneswar, May 31 (LocalWire): Separated conjoined twins Jaga and Balia, who have been under close observation of the doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi for the past two years, are set to return home next month.
The twins, now four years old, are gradually improving their health.
While Jaga is healthy and seemed to have no medical issues, his brother Balia still needs help in feeding but here’s no danger to his life.
A team of doctors from Odisha had recently visited the twins to assess whether they can be brought back home and AIIMS said to have no problem with that.
The state government has made arrangements for their air travel.
A team from AIIMS is also expected to accompany them to avoid any mishap during the transit.
In 2017, their conjoined heads were separated through a series of complex operations at AIIMS, and since then they had been under observation at the facility. Experts from Japan were also called to look into the case.
The state government has borne the entire cost of their treatment and stay.
