#1 Dr. Henri Ford was born in Haiti and returns for important surgeries
Though he came to America and became a pediatric surgeon via the Ivy League, he still feels a strong connection to his home.
#2 He assembled a team of American doctors to conduct a dangerous surgery
Two conjoined twins needed to be separated in a relatively quick manner.
#3 As the surgery began one of the twins blood pressure dropped dangerously low
Though they could pump fluids to ease the problem, it went to both twins and increased the urgency of the surgery.
#4 Ford held the twins after the surgery was successfully completed
He never misses an opportunity to help his native country and its people if he has the chance to do so.
#5 The mother of the twins was overjoyed
The surgery increases their potential life spans and gives them a shot at a fulfilling life they could have never had before.
