Life Comes Full-Circle for Orthopedic Surgeon from Ghana

AAOS—July 1, 2014

Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, MD, will soon fulfill a long-awaited dream. Having built a career as an expert in spine reconstruction and the treatment of scoliosis and kyphosis at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City, Dr. Boachie-Adjei will leave the United States and return to his homeland of Ghana.

Once there, he will devote himself full-time to running the orthopaedic hospital built by his nonprofit organization, the Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS), a group he established in 1998 to provide orthopaedic and spine care to underserved populations in Ghana and other countries. This work will be a continuation of the volunteerism that has marked the career of Dr. Boachie-Adjei, who received the AAOS Humanitarian Award in 2004.
