Nigerians have taken to social media to commend a Consultant Neurosurgeon, Dr. Omotayo Ojo, for carrying out a successful brain surgery.
Mike Essien, the CEO of Hotels.ng, had taken to twitter to appreciate the brilliance and hard work of Ojo, on the successful brain surgery carried out on his father.
Ojo, a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Lagoon Hospital, in 2013 won the prestigious Young Neurosurgeon award of the World Federation of Neurosurgeon Societies in South Korea.
Ojo won the award due to his outstanding work on Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy (ETV) in the treatment of hydrocephalus in children.
According to Essien: “After two emergency ruptured aneurysms, brain surgery in Lagos and a massive scar across his head, my Dad is back to his same jolly self.
“The doctors say his survival was miraculous, the neurologist says that it’s rare for someone to recover full brain function so quick.
“Three aneurysms successfully clipped in Lagos, the German checkup doctors said the Nigerian doctors did a world-class job.

Reacting to the successful feat, many Nigerians hailed the neorosurgeon for putting up a successful performance.

Gbemisola Esho said: “Congratulations! We have phenomenal neurosurgeons in Nigeria, remember Prof Tayo Sokunbi when performed surgery on a family member with a fantastic recovery rate too.”
Aje Agbaje said: “Dr Ojo. He did brain tumor surgery for someone very close to me. Man’s a genius and a national asset. He should be protected at all cost.”
