SCB Ready For Twins

Secretary, Health and Family Welfare Pramod Kumar Meherda inspected and reviewed the special arrangements at SCBMCH and directed the hospital authorities to provide necessary treatment to the separated twins.

Dr.Meherda on 6 September reviewed arrangements as the authorities of S.C.B. Medical College and Hospital (SCBMCH) have made elaborate arrangements for providing necessary treatment to separated twins Jaga-Balia.

Separated twins have been discharged from All India Institute of Medical Science(AIIMS) in Delhi and scheduled to be admitted to the State Government run hospital of the state on 7 September.

The SCB authorities have kept two cabins for the separated twins. While a cabin with ICU facility have been created in Casualty ward near the Trauma Care unit, another general cabin has been kept ready in Surgery Department. The condition of the separated twins first will be assessed then they will be accommodated as per their need.

“As we are unaware of the present health status of the separated twins, their accommodation will be finally decided only after their arrival and examination by a team of doctors,” said SCBMCH Superintendent CBK Mohanty.

 A 14-member team comprising specialists from Neurosurgery, Neurology, Surgery, GI Surgery, Pediatrics, Pediatric Surgery and Anesthesiology departments have been formed to provide necessary treatment to separated twins, he said.
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Post Graduate Institute of Pediatrics (SVPPGIP) Superintendent Prof. S.K. Satapathy, SCBMCH Emergency Medical Officer Dr. B.N. Moharana, Store Medical Officer, Hospital Manager, Physiotherapist of Neurosurgery and Physician have also been included in the team head by Head of the Neurosurgery Department Prof. Sudhansu Sekhar Mishra, Mohanty.

“The guidelines and treatment procedure will be decided after an elaborate discussion with the accompanying doctors from AIIMS,” said Prof.Mohanty adding that the team of doctors would be further modified if necessitated.

Notably, the craniopagus conjoined twins hailing from Milipada village in Kandhamal district were separated by a team of doctors after a 21-hour marathon surgery in October, 2017 in AIIMS, New Delhi.

The State Government decided to shift the twins to the SCBMCH after AIIMS in Bhubaneswar was reluctant to admit them due to lack of necessary treatment facilities for them
