TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN ACROSS THE WORLD

WCF Medical Director, Dr. Chris Gordon, separates conjoined twins, Augusto and Pedro, from Guatemala at Dayton Children's Hospital.

The separation of the twin boys, Augusto and Pedro, inspires the entire profession and fellow colleagues in craniofacial and neurosurgery. The World Craniofacial Foundation has a history of operating on conjoined twins. Our founder, Dr. Kenneth Salyer, separated Egyptian conjoined twin brothers Mohamed and Ahmed in Dallas in 2003. We are excited to share in the successful separation and wish Augusto and Pedro health and happiness as they return to Guatemala.
