Dr. Teddy Totimeh was trained as a neurosurgeon at Ghana’s premier medical teaching establishment and the top-rated hospital in the country. He also is a lecturer in the surgical department and runs nationwide symposia on head trauma and primary trauma care. Totimeh’s vision is to open a privately owned acute care center to enhance the country’s response to severe infective disease, disaster, as well as significantly reduce Ghana’s very high mortality rates from trauma. Totimeh hopes that with the launch of this new acute care center, he and his medical team can help save hundreds of lives each year. A gifted writer, Totimeh has published a volume of essays, a novel, and a book of poetry.
