Conjoined twins occur once in every 50,000 to 60,000 births. If conjoined twins have separate sets of organs, chances for surgery and survival are greater than if they share the same organs. Doctors at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have separated more than 20 sets of conjoined twins and have managed the care of many others whose separation was not surgically possible.
