Rabeya and Rokeya, who were born fused at the head, have made a full recovery and returned to their home.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina joined a virtual ceremony as the chief guest when Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed handed over the twins' discharge papers to their guardian today.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said, "The physicians of the country have gained great experience through conducting the surgery titled 'Operation Freedom.'"
The critical surgery took place in Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka on 2 August, 2019. The surgery made history when the babies were successfully detached from each other through the operation, said a press release.
The twins were born on 16 July, 2016, to primary school teachers Taslima Khatun and Rafiqul Islam in Pabna.
The sisters were taken to Dhaka's Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University for treatment five days after their birth. At that time, physicians could not conduct the operation due to different complexities.
Later, the duo spent over seven months in Hungary as part of preparations for the operation. They then returned to Dhaka accompanied by a team of about 30 doctors, who participated in the operation.
Over 100 Bangladeshi doctors from different institutes accompanied by the Hungarian specialists were involved in the procedure.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina took the responsibility of the twins' treatment on 24 October, 2018. She visited the CMH after the operation to see the two sisters.
The final separation was done after at least 44 different surgeries. There have been 17 such surgeries on twins with heads fused together in the world. Only five sets of twins have survived.
