Head of Directorate

The Directorate of Surgery is the largest of the clinical directorates in the hospital.

The Directorate of Surgery also has an affiliate academic department at the medical school: the Department of Surgery, for the training of undergraduate medical students at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Key Functions
·  Provision of specialist surgical care
·  Provision of specialist O.P.D consultation
·  Training of Undergraduate and postgraduate medical students.
·  Support training of nursing students.
·  Conduct research

 

The directorate has the following specialties:
·  General Surgery
·  Paediatric Surgery
·  Urology
·  Neurosurgery
·  Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
These specialties operate in the following wards:
·  Ward B1: this is a 38 bed surgical ward and admits all surgical cases. The ward is also usually used as an
examination ward for medical and nursing students.
·  Ward B2: this is a 40 bed ward for males and admits cases in urology, general surgery, neurosurgery
and plastic, burns and reconstructive surgery cases. It is also used sometimes as an examination ward.
·  Ward B3: this is the Paediatric Surgicery ward and has48 cots.

for the directorate.

The directorate runs a theatre with 5 operating rooms for both emergency and elective operations in addition to an ultrasoundroom. It also runs six specialist consulting rooms. In addition, there is a breast care centre where breast cases are attended to. A treatment protocol guideline and a draft standard documentation booklet has been developed. It is anticipated that implementation of these documents would enforce rigid standards and minimize patients days without compromising on the quality of health care.

The Head of the Directorate also doubles as the Head of Department of Surgery at the medical school. The lead clinician, in the person of Dr. Michael Ohene-Yeboah, is a lecturer with the medical school and co-ordinates clinical activities in the Directorate of Surgery in the hospital.
