Dear Dr Ochsenbein,
It seems like only yesterday that we visited you for an emergency examination and discovered that our daughters’ lives were in serious danger. You explained the options that were still open to us, and we immediately decided to split the placenta using laser surgery. I would even go so far as to say that this was the best decision we have ever made.

Our twins Noemi (twin B, white trousers) and Michelle (twin A, pink trousers) have been developing well and the first check-up confirmed that they will continue to do so.
We wanted to visit you at the hospital with the little ones, but you were on holiday at the time. So we would instead like to use this letter to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the excellent care you and your team provided at the University Hospital. Without your courageous treatment (including the caesarean procedure), the twins would probably not have stood a chance. We will never forget that you saved our daughters’ lives!
Kind regards,
The B.-V. family
