Dr. Sarpong was inspired to become a neurosurgeon because of his love of medicine and science and the ability to help people shape their lives. As a child in his native country of Ghana, he witnessed physicians providing excellent care and comfort to their patients which helped them change their lives for the better. That experience led to his current commitment to patient care, treating patients as though they are members of his family.

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, walking their dogs, watching movies, traveling and exercising. He and his wife have a passion for philanthropic work and are in the process of establishing organizations in Ghana that will provide access to health care and education for all.
