DALLAS -- Formerly conjoined Egyptian twin separated six years ago in Dallas have returned to Texas for checkups.
The boys were separated in 2003 during a 34-hour procedure after they were born joined at the tops of their heads.
Now 8, Mohamed and Ahmed Ibrahim attend school in Cairo, where they live with their parents and siblings.
On Wednesday, the boys were at the Texas Hospital for Advanced Medicine in Dallas, where they got a CT scan and were treated to a pizza-and-ice cream party. The hospital is launching a new Reconstructive Surgery Institute, which Salyer is founding.
Dr. Kenneth Salyer had brought the twins to Dallas for separation through his nonprofit World Craniofacial Foundation. Salyer says Mohamed is on target developmentally, but Ahmed is still a bit behind.
