Ojo who is a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the Lagoon Hospital won the prestigious Young Neurosurgeon award of the World Federation of Neurosurgeon Societies in South Korea in 2013. Ojo won the award due to his outstanding work on Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy (ETV) in the treatment of hydrocephalus in children. Narrating his ordeal with the life-threatening ailment, Aproko Doctor attributed his recovery to the efforts of Dr Ojo.
It was Dr Tayo Ojo, a neurosurgeon here in Nigeria, that did the surgery. So many people begged me to leave the country and get the surgery done, but something kept me back here because I still had trust in us. We just need more investment in our health sector,
he tweeted with an attachment of a photo of the doctor. This drew the attention of thousands of netizens who showered encomiums on the doctor as well as narrated their pleasant experience with the very talented yet down-to-earth doctor.

Dr. Ojo is the angel that saved my life from brain aneurysm in September 2022 too. Such a kind man. I was already bleeding into my brain before I got to LUTH on 9/9/2022. Here I am, recovering and grateful to be alive. Nigeria has hope if we can support our doctors.
