Four Star U.S. Military General Lori Robinson Honors Foundation Co-founder Dr. Magnus Ekedede

In a ceremony held on Friday June 30, 2017 at the residence of the US Ambassador in Nassau, Bahamas to celebrate US Independence, prominent neurosurgeon Dr. Magnus Ekedede (pronounced EKDD) was presented with a medal by the Chief Senior Enlisted Leader of NORAD and US Northern Command (NORTHCOM), Harold L. “Buddy” Hutchison, in recognition of Dr. Ekedede’s outstanding surgical skills which resulted in the life of Chief Hutchison’s daughter, Brittany, being saved.

Dr. Ekedede’s skills were further recognized by 4 Star Air Force General Lori Robinson whom on Chief Hutchison’s behalf presented the medal to Dr. Ekedede.  The medal on its front and back are inscribed with:

General Robinson took over as leader of U.S. Northern Command, becoming the first female service member to lead a unified combatant command and thus the highest ranking woman in U.S. military history.

In being recognized by General Robinson and Chief Hutchison, Ekedede said, “while I am un-deserving, I am humbled and honored to be recognized in this way by such outstanding people. It is God who gets the credit and praise for my neurosurgery skills. I am simply the vehicle he uses to deliver miracles which in this case was Brittany. I am proud to have contributed to saving Brittany’s life which no doubt she will go on to have a long and productive one!”

Chief Hutchison said of Dr. Ekedede, “He is such an incredible man…..both very talented and very humble. I will never be able to adequately thank him for saving our daughter’s life….How do you thank someone for something of that magnitude? We are just very happy to be able to present Dr. Ekedede with these small tokens of our appreciation for the amazing work that he does every day. We hope that when he looks at these, he knows that he makes a difference in people’s lives every day and that he will always be a part of our family!”

Dr. Ekedede is the Chief of Neurosurgery at Doctors Hospital and The Princess Margaret Hospital in the Bahamas and lecturer of neurosurgery at the University of the West Indies, Bahamas Campus. He is also the Co-Founder of the Mitchell Ekedede Brain Injury Foundation and the Mitchell Ekedede Foundation Corporation, a 501c3 IRS approved charity, incorporated and operating in the Bahamas and Miami, Florida, respectively.
