HUNTERIAN ORATION

Monday 16th January 2023

“Lies, biases and predictions – Separating Craniopagus Twins by deconstructing the impossible.” 

Dr Owase Jeelani, BM BS, MRCS, MPhil (Medical Law) MBA, FRCS.

6.45pm Reception and Dinner

8.00pm Society Business

8.10pm Dr Owase Jeelani      

Owase qualified from the University of Nottingham and undertook basic surgical training there and also in Southampton.  He then undertook Neurosurgical and Craniofacial training in the UK and Canada with fellowships in Paediatric Neurosurgery and Craniofacial Surgery at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children and Sick Kids in Toronto.

Dr Jeelani rose to National and International prominence in 2011 when his team at the Great Ormond Street Hospital separated craniopagus twins from the Sudan and again in 2019 with twins from Pakistan. News coverage of that surgical triumph ranked as the 6th most read news item globally in 2019.  Since then, he has separated twins from Turkey in 2020 and Israel in 2021.  He will speak about the difficulties encountered and how his team overcame them in what is the most difficult and dangerous neurosurgery.
