FOCOS Spine Fellowship Programme: With over 200 cases per year, the Spine Service focuses on a wide range of treatments, including laminectomies, laminotomies, anterior cervical disectomies and fusions, as well as more technically challenging major reconstructive procedures requiring standard osteotomies, pedicle subtraction osteotomies, and posterior and anterior vertebral column resections. Fellows are exposed to the highest standard of patient care.
The hospital currently has the largest volume of complex paediatric deformities treated with prolonged tension based Halo gravity traction dual rod instrumentation, with limited fusion for treatment of progressively early onset scoliosis and complex definitive reconstructive techniques. FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital is a recognized world and national leader in the treatment of spine deformity, as well as education, training, and research, and continues to advance techniques for the treatment of complex spine deformities.
The lead surgeon and surgical faculty are members of the Scoliosis Research Society, the North American Spine Society and the West Africa College of Surgeons and are nationally and internationally recognized for their work in clinical and research activities.
