UTHSC honors Calhoon family with endowed professorship
President Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D., announced the Calhoon President’s Council Chair for Excellence in Surgery. The first holder is Dr. John Calhoon, who joined the faculty in 1989 and has performed more than a thousand lifesaving surgeries to repair congenital heart defects and other abnormalities in South Texas children.
"The President’s Council honors
Dr. Calhoon for his lifetime of exemplary service and for consistently going above and beyond the call of duty in his role as a skilled surgeon and caring physician," Dr. Cigarroa said. Among his many historic achievements, Dr. Calhoon and a surgical team in 1993 corrected a defective aortic valve in a 2-day-old boy.
