UTMB surgeon receives global award in burn care
Date:6/11/2014

oponent of skin banks. He has conducted more than 100 clinical trials to improve burn recovery. Moreover, he has mentored 174 fellows who work in burn care all over the world.

"It was humbling for me to be considered for this award, given the giants of research who have preceded me as recipients," said Herndon. "Since I began my career as a burn specialist in the 1980s, great progress has been made in the field of burn injuries, particularly the reduction in mortality for those suffering from massive burn injuries. The focus on rehabilitation and improving long-term function has dramatically increased healing of not only the patient's wounds, but the whole human being."

Earlier this year, Herndon was awarded the Medallion for Scientific Achievement by the American Surgical Association, the highest accolade presented by the oldest surgical society in the United States.

The Blocker Burn Unit at UTMB was the first such center to be fully accredited in the United States. The center is named for Dr. Truman Blocker, the first president of UTMB and a combat surgeon in World War II. He treated survivors of the 1947 Texas City industrial explosion and with his wife Virginia, also a medical doctor, followed survivors for many years as a pioneer in the care of burn patients.

The Tanner-Vandeput-Boswick Burn Prize was established in 1984 by the late Dr. J.C. Tanner of Atlanta, Ga. Tanner, assisted by Dr. Jacques Vandeput, invented the Tanner-Vandeput Mesh Dermatome, a device that enables skin grafts to be expanded to cover a larger area of a patient's burn. The IBF was created to promote and administer the burn prize. Tanner honored the contributions of the late Dr. John Boswick, first chairman of the IBF board of directors, by adding his name to the prize.
