Ben Carson Ladan and Laleh Bijani

Part of Bijani team

9 Jul, 2003

Carson is one of the surgeons on the team that attempts the first separation of conjoined twins joined at the skull. Neither twin survives.

 The women certainly understood the risks and were determined to proceed. I felt compelled to get involved to help give them their best chance at survival and separation, and I have no regrets over my decision. No act is a failure if you learn from it.
