Year Joined Emory as a Faculty Member



Dr. Ingram did his general surgery residency and fellowship in trauma/burns at Emory, after which he assumed directorship of the Grady Burn Center in 1992. The center admits over 500 burn patients per year and provides the vast majority of pediatric burn care in Georgia. Dr. Ingram has fine-tuned the center's capabilities by standardizing wound care protocols, expanding hydrotherapy facilities, upgrading and refining pain control processes, and initiating services for patients with complex wound problems secondary to burns. Following Dr. Ingram's application for verification from the American Burn Association (ABA) and a rigorous site visit, the Grady Burn Center received ABA verification from 2102-2015. This is the highest recommendation a burn center can receive. The center is currently in the process of applying for reaccreditation.
