After the devastating Haiti earthquake in 2010, cojoined twins Marian and Michelle Bernard got a shot at a normal life because of a surgeon who chose to return home. Dr. Henri Ford, originally from Port-au-Prince and now the Chief of Surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, revisited his homeland as part of the disaster relief efforts but did not want to offer his help as a one time thing. He decided to continue to help and visits the country frequently to provide his medical expertise where he can. After learning about the twins, he wanted to help them.
After months of preparation, Dr. Ford was ready to perform the rarest and riskiest operation there is to separate the two girls. Watch the video below, as Dr. Ford and his team gather in prayer before performing an ultimately successful surgery.
