Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Born Benjamin Solomon Carson in Detroit, Michigan, Ben Carson was a neurosurgeon who was the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland from 1984 until 2013.

In 2009 Carson was the subject of a television drama starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. called "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story."
