From the pages of his best-selling book, Gifted Hands, Dr. Ben Carson comes to life in this even more inspiring video. Instead of having to imagine the man and his world, you can actually see and hear Ben Carson at home with his family and watch his gifted hands during surgery. You can observe him encouraging school children to try to be all that they can be. And you can accompany him on his professional rounds at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. In 1987, Dr. Carson gained worldwide recognition and was featured on ABC's 20/20 for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head -- an extremely complex and delicate operation that was five months in planning and twenty-two hours of actual surgery, involving a surgical plan that Carson helped initiate. In this video you will meet these twins and other former patients along with members of their families.
