    Yes. Depends on which model of Macbook Pro you're using. If its the newer ones with the MiniDisplay Port then you just get an adapter for MiniDisplay to DVI.

    That will connect to only one external DVI monitor. I am looking for 2 external monitor, MiniDisplay to 2 DVI. I there currently an Apple or third party adapter that can do that?

    It is not possible coz the video card can't handle it. However, if you persist, what you need is a mini dvi to dvi splitter which is not cheap. This might help.

    Dual head to go from Matrox will give you an idea.

    You have a few options if you wish to connect two monitors to your Macbook Pro

    A bit pricey

    or

    You can try a Samsung Lapfit monitor which I believe plugs into the USB instead of the mini display/DVI port.
