There are only a few individuals who have left footprints in the sands of time in their livelihood. This is likened to the success story of the famous American Medical Doctor, Ben Carson.
Dr. Benjamin Carson is a retired Neurosurgeon who performed the first successful separation of conjoined twins, who were attached at the back of the head. This condition in medicine is called "Occipital Craniopagus Twins".
The success of the procedure and the reconstructive techniques employed gained Carson world recognition as a" Paediatric Neurosurgeon". In previous years, he led a team of South African and Zambian surgeons, in a separation of twins attached at the top of the head.
Carson was also known to have performed the first successful rescue of a Hydrocephalic twin.
Dr. Ben Carson refined a technique known as "Hemispherectomy", in which one-half of the brain is removed to prevent seizures in persons with severe epilepsy. His techniques for Hemispherectomy and Craniofacial reconstructive surgery became influential in the fields of Neurosurgery and Plastic Surgery.
