Summary
In many parts of India, particularly its most poverty-stricken corners, life for girls can be difficult indeed. So what hope was there for Stuti and Aradhana-conjoined newborn sisters with two tiny hearts beating in a shared sac, their bodies sharing a single liver? As the staff at Padhar Hospital in Madhya Pradesh mounted a nationwide fundraising campaign for surgery, hospital chief Dr Rajiv Choudhrie called on a friend practicing at The Children's Hospital at Westmead in Sydney. Dr. Gordon Thomas in turn reached out to eminent pediatric surgeon Albert Shun and anesthetist David Baines, who joined what would be an operating team of 24 doctors and 40 nurses. This program was produced with intimate access to the extraordinary surgical team and the marathon effort to separate Stuti and Aradhana. An emotional roller-coaster of a story, it is also a powerful look at the resourcefulness required of medical professionals in the developing world
