Dr. Benjamin Carson
Dr. Benjamin Carson is currently director of pediatric neurosurgery and an assistant professor of neurosurgery, oncology and pediatrics at John Hopkins University Hospital. He is best known for his role as pediatric neurosurgeon in a complex operation separating Siamese twins joined at the head.
The patients were seven-month-old brothers from West Germany who, because of their condition, would be bed-ridden all their lives. Dr. Carson and his associates planned the delicate and complex operation for five months, as they reviewed every detail and intricate surgical procedure to be used.
On September 7, 1987, after 22 hours of surgery, Dr. Carson and the surgical team emerged from the operating room triumphant. Newsweek stated, "this could be the most complex surgical procedure performed in this country."
