Dr Noor Ul Owase Jeelani, a UK-based Indian-origin pediatric surgeon, recently performed a complex surgery to separate two Israeli babies who were conjoined at the head. The 12-hour operation was carried out along with a group of Israeli doctors at Israel’s Soroka hospital.
Dr Jeelani, who was born in Kashmir, is currently working at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital. This was his first operation outside the UK. He said he could not refuse the Israeli counterparts when they contacted him for his assistance in the complicated surgery.
