Spine Surgery - Accra, Ghana | Heyland's Sponsored
For nearly two years I complained of severe lower back pain and could hardly sit or stand for an hour. This negatively impacted my education as I frequently absented myself from school. I sought medical attention from different facilities but all efforts proved futile. A family friend then recommended FOCOS hospital to my mum and after some few research online we concluded it was the best facility to treat my condition.
I must confess that I was amazed and satisfied with the care and assistance I received from FOCOS right from the Outpatient department to the various departments I encountered that fateful day. I was given a surgery bill which my parents could not afford so went home without any hope of me getting well. I received funding for my surgery a year later from Mr. Heyland and had a successful surgery on 20th September, 2017.
The doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dietician, cleaners, pharmacists and all non-medical staff were very polite, kind and treated me with respect and dignity. I cannot end without saying a big thank you to the great spine surgeon Prof. Boachie-Adjei who straightened the curve and helped me stand tall. Also to Mr. and Mrs. Heyland, I am eternally grateful for your financial assistance and generosity which has given me a new and promising life.
I am back to school to continue with my education and can sit and concentrate for longer periods. I will preach FOCOS everywhere I go.
