Spine Surgery - Accra, Ghana | Heyland's Sponsored
I endured frequent lower back pain for about 2 years until I finally visited FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital in 2017 following a referral from a clinic in Accra. The pain worsened by the day and the usual pain medication could no longer take away the pain. The specialized team in FOCOS recommended a surgery to correct the spinal deformity. Hearing of surgery alone sent some chills down my spine because I had heard all kinds of negative outcomes of spine surgeries.
After a few chats with some treated patients and staff of the hospital, I was convinced that I was in safe hands. Finally, I was given a surgery bill to which my mother sincerely voiced out that she could not afford since she was a single mother raising three children from the little she saves from her petty trade. The social workers in the hospital then took my details and offered to help me through a sponsorship scheme the hospital operates with the help of benevolent individuals and organizations. Eight months later I received a call from the hospital with good news that a benevolent individual had offered to sponsor my surgery. This was indeed good new to my family.
I had my surgery was admitted on the 18th of September and had surgery the following day. Surgery, recovery and hospital stay was all successful and memorable. I encountered pleasant staffs in the various departments who treated me with love and respect and promptly attended to my needs. I also enjoyed after discharge care plan and calls from staffs of the hospital to ensure I was doing well at home. I will vouch for FOCOS Hospital any day any time, as the best Orthopedic Hospital in Ghana and Africa.
I have my life back again, am currently back in school to complete my Junior High School education and I will always be grateful to my sponsor Mr. Heyland, my spine surgeon Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei and the entire FOCOS team. May you excel in all your endeavors.
