Indian girl born with 8 limbs ‘doing well’

November 13, 2007

Two-year-old Lakshmi Tatma, an Indian toddler born with four arms and four legs, made her first public appearance Tuesday, a week after surgeons in India successfully removed her additional limbs.

Lakshmi, wearing a plaster cast on her legs to keep her feet up and her legs together to help her wounds heal, was carried into a news conference Tuesday as her doctors announced she was being released from intensive care.

“She is coping very well,” lead surgeon Dr. Sharan Patil said. “She is being carried around by her mother and her father.”

Several of her doctors, all of them smiling, described her recovery over the past week “very steady and good progress,” one saying she is “out of the woods” as far as serious medical issues are concerned.
