Two (2) former Conjoined Patients of Dr Ben Carson. Patrick Binder and Benjamin Binder (born 1987-02-02) were conjoined twins, joined at the head.1987

Patrick and Benjamin Binder (born 1987-02-02) were conjoined twins, joined at the head, born in Germany, in early 1987, and separated in South Africa, in January 1998.



  • Utter farce. Who ever supposedly researched this story (& checked facts before printing) needs sacking:

    “First and foremost, the second photograph does not depict Benjamin and Patrick Binder at all. Instead, it shows identical twins Cramer and Carson Gormley from Lake Fenton, Michigan. The photograph, along with other pictures of the Gormley twins, was featured in a February 2008 news report about the financial challenges of raising twins. The boys were 18 years old at the time the photograph was taken.

    Sadly, although Dr Carson’s surgery did successfully separate the Binder twins, the long term health outcomes for Benjamin and Patrick were far from ideal. After the 1987 operation, the boys moved back to Germany with their parents. While Dr Carson’s fame continued to grow, news of the Binder twins was scarce indeed and, in time, they all but disappeared from public attention. But, according to a 2015 report by The Washington Post, the boys were ‘hopelessly delayed’ and, years after the operation, ‘neither boy could get around on his own or feed himself’. Later, their mother Theresia Binder, found she was unable to cope with the boys on her own and they went to live at a home for disabled children as wards of the state. Patrick Binder reportedly died some time ago. Benjamin Binder is reportedly doing ‘relatively well’ but still cannot speak.”
