Summer 2022 Newsletter

A Message from the Publications Committee:

Welcome to the inaugural online edition of the Department of Surgery newsletter at the University of Texas Medical Branch! We are excited to bring our team's accomplishments to a larger stage and look forward to the many ways this newsletter could grow over time. 

In so many ways, our department is on the verge of something new. We are expanding our team, services, training programs, and our reach throughout the community. The articles in this edition showcase our growing transplant initiatives, our offerings in GI and Urology surgical care, our dedication to leadership in surgery, and more. 

If you are a current or alumnus member of UTMB Surgery, please contact our Office of Publications at any time. We want to learn about your work, and we might even feature you here in the future!
