Dr. Benjamin Carson was born in Detroit, Michigan on September 18, 1951. Once a poor student, Carson overcame the odds and graduated with honors and went on to attend medical school! At the age of 33, he became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Carson is credited as the first surgeon to successfully separate twins conjoined at the head!
