I was lucky enough to receive the opportunity to go to Accra, Ghana in November with FOCOS. This was a special trip and has made me grow as a clinician as well as a person. I was there for 2 weeks, the first week was joint week and the second was spine week. Upon arrival everyone immediately becomes family. You live in the same house, eat all your meals together, travel to and from work together and spend all day at the hospital together. This was one of my favorite […]

By 7 a.m., he and his team had set everything up in the operating room and tested it — the computer […]
