Dr Michael Obeng is the only black plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills and is making millions working with high-profile clients including royals to celebrities and rich socialites. He is the CEO of Miko Plastic Surgery and he is worth N2.9 billion.
Obeng was only 20 when he moved to America from Ghana with only N72,000 in his pocket. Although he started small, he was always determined to help the less fortunate people and started achieving it by studying to become a surgeon.
He studied at the Midwestern State University, University of Texas Medical School and Harvard University and became a well-known plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills after studying for several years and practising in some of the best hospitals.
Asides being a successful surgeon, Obeng is also a giver. He is the founder of R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide, a non-profit organisation that performs free reconstructive surgeries for children and adults in African countries.
He is an expert in complex reconstructive surgery, hand, and micro-neurovascular surgery as well. He is also one of the few surgeons in the world to have successfully reattached a limb.
Dr Obeng's efforts have earned him the 2017 GUBA Humanitarian Spirit Award. He has already performed over 500 successful free surgeries and he hopes he could reach more people to further make an impact in the world.
Meanwhile, three optometrists from Ghana, Dr Eugene Appenteng Osae, Dr Afua Oteng Asare and Dr Heinz Otchere, won big at the Third World Congress of Optometry (WCO) in Florida, USA.
The awards the three Ghanaian doctors received were part of the William C. Ezell Fellowships and is one of the highest-ranked awards of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO).
