In Memory of James T. Goodrich, MD, PhD

Dr. Goodrich dedicated his life to saving children with complex neurological conditions. He was a pioneer in this field and developed a multi-stage approach for separating craniopagus twins who are fused at the brain and skull. In 2016, he famously led a team of 40 doctors in a 27-hour procedure to separate the McDonald twins, Jadon and Anias. Throughout his distinguished career he became known as the world’s leading expert on this lifesaving procedure. He was consulted on hundreds of cases, and he routinely traveled the world sharing his vast knowledge and expertise with colleagues. 
 
Dr. Goodrich passed away on March 30, 2020 from complications associated with COVID-19.

Donations in his memory will support research and clinical care for children with facial and cranial abnormalities.
