Formerly Conjoined Twins Wow Family’s Longtime Sutter Pediatrician

Posted by on Apr 10, 2017 | 0 comments

ROSEVILLE, Calif. – Roseville pediatrician Eswari Prakasam, M.D., was ready to check in the ears of 2-year-old Eva Sandoval, one of the formerly conjoined twins from Antelope.

Former conjoined twin Erika Sandoval, right, smiles while wearing bunny ears as her twin Eva’s real ears are checked by Sutter Medical Foundation pediatrician Eswari Prakasam, M.D.

“What’s in your ears?” she asked Eva. Her mother, Aida Sandoval, added, “Is it Goofy?”

“Nooooo,” Eva said with a huge smile.

It was Eva and twin Erika’s first visit to the Sandoval family’s longtime pediatrician since the two were surgically separated in December. And after the hour-long check-up, Dr. Prakasam gave the twins two big thumbs-up.

“They’re doing great,” Dr. Prakasam said. “They’re healing well and there’s absolutely no concerns of their mental capabilities. In fact, I’d say they’re a little advanced. They know and say stuff that’s more like a 3-year-old than a 2-year-old.” Read More
