FOCOS was established in 1998 to provide comprehensive, affordable orthopedic and spine care to underserved communities in Ghana and throughout West Africa. FOCOS has built an international network of world-class volunteer surgeons and other medical providers to bring surgeries to patients in need. Since its establishment, FOCOS has evaluated thousands of patients from various parts of Africa and performed hundreds of corrective orthopedic procedures in Ghana for adult and pediatric populations.  In 2004 FOCOS opened an outpatient clinic in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, and has recently embarked on a capital campaign to build its own hospital in Accra.  FOCOS has also provided its services to patients in Barbados.
