Dr. Teddy Totimeh trained as a neurosurgeon at Ghana’s premier medical teaching establishment and teaching hospital. He has spent additional time training in Israel, the US and Kenya. He is currently a consultant neurosurgeon at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital and a part-time lecturer
in neuro-anatomy. He also runs nationwide symposia on head trauma and primary trauma care. He is a 2017 Joanna Brigg’s Fellow conducting a best practices implementation survey in Greater Accra Regional Hospital on head injury management. A 2016 Eisenhower Fellow, Totimeh believes that
empowering the private sector to handle critically ill patients is key to raising the profile of specialized healthcare in the country. He is collaborating with fellow doctors and entrepreneurs with a vision to build centres of excellence for acutely ill patients. Mentoring, education and equipping of these centres is key to improving the outcomes for all acutely ill patients. Together with his group, Totimeh is committed to organizing high quality well resourced educational conferences that directly impact standards of care in Ghana and in the sub region for neuro-oncology patients.
A gifted writer, and a keen observer of the human heart and battles of being, Totimeh has published volumes of essays, short stories and a book of poetry. He blogs regularly on Linked In Pulse.
