Teddy Totimeh, Neurosurgeon
Department of Surgery Korle Bu Teaching Hospital
I trained in Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra Ghana. My main interests are in Pediatric Neurosurgery and Neuroendoscopy. I work in a centre which runs the only teaching neurosurgical service in Southern Ghana. We therefore manage a lot of neurological injuries because of our high road traffic accident rates. I have been teaching in the basic surgical skills course and have participated in the ATOM advanced trauma course in Ghana. I have completed 2 years of clinical neurosurgery fellowship in Israel and Kenya and 3 months base skull Neuroendoscopy in the US. Trauma care in Ghana is crucial and I will be privileged to learn methods that can be passed on.
This award recognises that the individual has organised at least 4 PTC Course cascades and has trained at least 10 instructors.
