Mr Noor ul Owase Jeelani, Consultant Paediatric Neurosurgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH), a world leader in craniopagus twin separation, and Founder of Gemini Untwined, will be joining Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, for a conversation about his surgical career, how a background in law and business has shaped his approach to multidisciplinary patient management and improvement in overall care and outcomes, his research into Craniofacial Morphology with the FaceValue team, and his work and research with his charity, Gemini Untwined, into craniopagus twins.
Mr Jeelani was the Head of the Department of Neurosurgery at GOSH from 2012 until 2018 and is currently an Honorary Associate Professor at the Institute of Child Health at University College London (UCL). He undertakes between 200-300 paediatric neurosurgical and craniofacial cases per year and has been the lead neurosurgeon for the successful separation of multiple craniopagus twins including the cases of the Sudanese twins Rital and Ritag in 2011, Pakistani twins Safa and Marwa in 2019, and Turkish twins, Yigit and Derman in 2020.
He is a Co-Director and leader of FaceValue, a research team of scientists and biomedical engineers based at the Institute of Child Health, UCL. The research focus is on Craniofacial Morphology and developing techniques and distractors to achieve this change in a less invasive and more predictable manner.
In 2019, he co-founded Gemini Untwined, a global charity dedicated to supporting the research and treatment for craniopagus conjoined twins.
