Meet Dr. Boachie-Adjei, The Ghanaian Surgeon Healing Hunchbacks For Free

A hunchback is a person whose back is hunched/curved because of abnormal curvature of the upper spine. People living with this condition suffer all forms of stigma and ridicule in the society.

But with people like Dr. Boachie-Adjei, there’s going to a respite for them as the Ghanaian surgeon is on a mission to offer his services to those who need it and has been healing hunchbacks for free.

Dr. Boachie-Adjei is the founder of the Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS) hospital. He and his team provide orthopedic care to the less privileged, including treatment of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

The offer their services to people living in Ghana and beyond who cannot beat the cost of such expensive surgeries. Built in 2012, the FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital is an ultra-modern 50-bed specialty facility providing services to adult and pediatric patients in need of orthopedic care.

The FOCOS Hospital is fully accredited to operate both inpatient and outpatient departments and specializes in complex spine and joint replacement surgeries.

This was a project started by Dr. Boachie-Adjei seven years ago when he returned to Ghana from the United States (US). The surgeon previously worked as the Chief of the Scoliosis Service at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS).

He was also formerly a Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Dr. Boachie-Adjei and his team have treated more than 30,000 patients since starting this project and have also completed more than 1,250 complex spine and joint surgeries.
