Medplux is a worldwide brand with a desire to help people understand medical diseases in a simple way, with Dr. Akatakpo Dunn as the head and chief editor of the website.

With our desire and your help, we will continue to teach medical ailments to people with little or no medical knowledge.

While growing up, it was difficult to get a real understanding of basic medical diseases.

This was my driving force to quickly help patients, medical students, and everyone with the most basic knowledge of medicine.

Knowledge is the key to living a healthy life.

Nevertheless, The material on this website is for educational information purposes only.

It should complement but not substitute or delay medical advice, diagnosis or treatment from a health professional.
