Mother and son: Meet the Drs. Margetis

Physical drawbacks don’t hamper the life of a USC faculty member who was adopted as an infant

John Margetis was adopted from a Taiwanese orphanage by USC pediatric pulmonologist Monique Margetis. Though born without hands and only partial feet, John’s “limb differences” haven’t held him back one bit.

He skydives and rides a road bike. He drives an unmodified car. And at the Keck Hospital of USC, he teaches patients recovering from stroke to use their limbs again.

John Margetis is a clinical assistant professor in the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy.
