Lakshmi, named after the four-armed Hindu goddess of wealth, suffers from the rare condition ischiopagus
The rare condition - known as ischiopagus
- means Lakshmi was born with eight limbs, four kidneys, two spines, tangled nerves and other problems.
Mary and Jodie were ischiopagus
tetrapus conjoined twins, which means that they were joined in the pelvic region and had four lower limbs between them.
The company has had previous experience in physical modeling for several other conjoined twin cases, including ischiopagus
twins successfully separated last month at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
