About the foundation and its mission:
The Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS) is a non-profit 501 c(3) organization launched in the United States in 1998. Our mission is to provide access to high quality, affordable, and specialized orthopedic care to those, primarily in Ghana and the broader African region, who would not otherwise have access to such treatment.
FOCOS was founded under the visionary leadership of Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, who is one of the worlds prominent specialists in treating spinal deformities. As native of Ghana, West Africa, Dr. Boachie-Adjei began FOCOS by sponsoring several medical mission trips each year to West Africa, Ghana in particular, to serve the medical needs of patients. With the support of more than 250 international volunteers and through coordination with local hospitals, FOCOS was able to help provide free evaluations and perform hundreds of complex spinal surgeries on adult and pediatric patients.
Through relentless efforts and the generous contributions from major private donors around the world, FOCOS helped to fund the building and opening of FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital in 2012, serving not only the local community, but patients from across the globe. The hospital features two operating theaters, a recovery room, a physiotherapy center, orthotics lab, radiology and MRI center, and more. It is the only facility of its kind in all of West Africa and is a critical part of the healthcare infrastructure in the region. Patients have access to treatment for a full range of spinal and joint deformities that would otherwise go untreated. With the support of dedicated staff at FOCOS Hospital, volunteers, generous donors and partners, we are transforming the lives of patients and helping them to STAND TALL! We are helping to save lives, one patient at a time.
As you learn more about FOCOS and the incredible achievements of our organization, we hope that you will be inspired and become partners in our mission.
