6/20/15 Dr. Tea is the third podiatrist to be awarded a certificate from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Plastic Surgery Department as a Wound Care Surgery Fellow. Few podiatrists go on to fellowship training and even fewer into wound care. The focus of this training was in limb salvage/preservation, both in research and clinical application. Collaboration with many specialities including internal medicine, infectious disease, vascular surgery, cardiovascular surgery, and plastic surgery was implemented in an effort to coordinate care in patients with difficult medical problems, such as diabetes.
