Mata Twins Separation Video Gallery
Prior to the historic separation surgery, the twins underwent a procedure to place custom-made tissue expanders into their chest and abdomen area.
To keep pressure off of their tissue expanders, a team developed a special positioning swing that kept them upright for large portions of the day.
3-D modeling played an integral role in the planning and preparation of the Mata twins’ separation surgery.
The Mata twins’ separation surgery was a team effort, involving 12 surgeons, nine nurses and countless support staff working in concert over 26 hours.
After their separation surgery, the Mata twins and their family began their journey together through the recovery process.
