FINDING MY MOJO: How a Little Boy from the Mountains of Morocco Changed an American Surgeon's Life By Pier Boutin, MD | 2018
My chance encounter with a four-year old boy in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco changed both our lives. The orthopedic surgeon in me recognized this congenital deformity as untreated clubfeet.
I brought Little Mo to the United States to live with us while I arranged to have his feet corrected. He returned to his family eight months later – running and jumping like other kids his age. While his legs and feet grew strong, my self-worth and drive returned. We healed each other.
