When you’re locked into a tough match and throwing punches with abandon, you want Wayne A. Lee, MD, by your side in the ring. An orthopaedic surgeon based in San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Lee has been ringside for decades as a member of several advisory boards and commissions, including the American Association of Ringside Professional Physicians (AAPRP), USA Boxing, and the Texas Boxing Commission. Outside the world of professional sports, Dr. Lee has been a practicing doctor for thirty years, currently affiliated with the Baptist Medical Center and serving as a clinical instructor at the Methodist Hospital for UT Health Science Center. As demonstrated by his significant publications in specialized publications, Dr. Lee has a deep interest in modern research as it relates to serious issues: he has conducted extensive research on gunshot wounds in children and adolescents, as well as the ways in which neurons can be protected in spinal cord injuries. There is no limit to the diversity of Dr. Lee’s interests within his field. This range includes surgical advancements using negative pressure therapy, a topic Dr. Lee will be speaking on at the CPD’s 12th Biennial Canadian Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Symposium, taking place April 14-16, 2016.
