EDUCATIONBachelor's degree in psychology from Yale University, 1973; medical degree from the University of Michigan School of Medicine, 1977; an internship in general surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, 1977; and a residency in neurological surgery at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, 1978-1982. Dr. Ben Carson From Slow Learner To Brilliant Brain Surgeon About him... His parents, Robert and Sonya Carson, divorced when he was 8. His mother scraped by as a domestic worker to support him and his brother, Curtis. Academics were not a priority for Ben Carson, whose lack of confidence mirrored his family's depressed living conditions. "My initial problem was that I thought I was stupid," Carson said. "And everybody pretty much agreed. So my nickname was 'Dummy'." Carson's mother had a different agenda for her two sons, choosing education as a way for them to escape poverty. She devised a strict schedule with limited time in front of the television and frequent trips to the library. In addition to their homework, the boys had to turn in two additional book reports each week. Carson recalled that his mother made check marks on the reports although -- unknown to him at the time -- she couldn't read then. At 33, he became the youngest chief of pediatric neurosurgery ever at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Today, Dr. Carson is director of pediatric neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore, Maryland. He is world-renowned for leading a medical team that separated West German conjoined twins in 1987, as well as leading a team of South African doctors in the first successful separation of vertically conjoined twins in 1997. He has refined the techniques for hemispherectomy, a radical brain surgery to stop intractable seizures, and has developed, along with the Hopkins plastic surgery division, a craniofacial program to help children who need combined neurosurgical and plastic surgical reconstruction. Zambia twinsIn 1997, Carson led a team of South African physicians in the first successful separation of twins who were joined at the head but facing in opposite directions. Carson was able to "practice" the operation by using 3-D imagery of the twins' brains and skulls. The 11-month-old boys, Luka and Joseph Banda of Zambia, survived without neurological deficits.
