Mission accomplished:
Garza hands over reins of division of plastic and reconstructive surgery

May 2004

The Health Science Center congratulates Jaime R. Garza, M.D., D.D.S., who established the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Health Science Center in 1994, on his retirement as he moves to private practice. He will focus on teaching residents through the successful residency program he built.

Dr. Garza served as professor of surgery, otolaryngology and prosthodontics, chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery, residency program director and associate vice president for the South Texas/Border Region health professions education initiative. It was his dedication and leadership that established the university’s highly successful training program in plastic and reconstructive surgery. The program now employs five full-time faculty members and trains civilian and military residents through its residency training program each year.

Dr. Garza plans to devote his time to his private practice and to continuing to develop The University of Texas Sports Science Institute, a collaborative effort among the Health Science Center, UTSA and UT Austin, that incorporates education, sports research, sports medicine, sports psychology and community wellness. He also will continue to lecture and teach in the operating room through his private practice.
