Virtual workbench used in conjoined twin surgery

2004
Keith Weller, Johns Hopkins Magazine

In 2004, pediatric neurosurgeons at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center attempted a complex surgery to separate conjoined twins. Maiyappan Solaiyappan, pictured here, helped develop a "virtual workbench" that allows neurosurgeons to see the girls' brains as a three-dimensional, manipulable object. Read the full story of the surgery in this Johns Hopkins Magazine article. Image contributed by Maiyappan Solaiyappan.
