US-based Surgeons end visit to FOCOS

US-based Surgeons end their week-long mission trip to FOCOS today. The four-member team were at the hospital as part of their regular visit to transfer knowledge and share expertise with the FOCOS medical team.

The team included: Dr. Yaw Boachie-Adjei, a hand, shoulder and elbow surgeon at the Southeast Permanente Medical Group in Atlanta, Dr. Drew J. Brown IV an orthopaedic spine surgeon at the Laser Spine Institute in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Stephen Becher a trauma surgeon at the Atlanta Medical Center and Dr. Sravan Dhulipala a hand surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Prior to this visit, Dr. Yaw Boachie-Adjei, Dr. Drew J. Brown IV and Dr. Stephen Becher were at the facility eight months ago to perform a number musculoskeletal surgeries together with Dr. Joseph Ogyaadu the Medical Director and Head of the Orthopedic Department at the FOCOS.

With the ongoing installation of a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), FOCOS will become a multifunctional facility which provides quality healthcare for sub-Saharan Africa and the rest of the world.
