Last month we told the happy story of a set of conjoined twins who were successfully separated at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Not long after the procedure, the Sacramento Bee highlighted the work of Stanford plastic surgeon Peter Lorenz, MD, a member of the twins' team. In an article and in the video above, Lorenz talks about his small patients and what drew him into this field.
