Dr. James T. Goodrich, a pioneer in separating conjoined twins, is mourned

Dr. Goodrich dedicated his life to saving children with complex neurological conditions. In 2016, he successfully led a team of 40 doctors in a 27-hour procedure to separate the MacDonald twins, Jadon and Anias, who were fused at the brain and skull. Dr. Goodrich spent more than 30 years at Montefiore-Einstein and was the Director of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Montefiore and Professor of Clinical Neurological Surgery, Pediatrics, Plastic and Reconstructive surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Goodrich passed away on March 30, 2020 from complications associated with COVID-19.

“Doctor Goodrich was a beacon of our institution and he will be truly missed.”

Dr. Philip O. Ozuah, Montefiore Medicine CEO
