Dr. Walter L. Ingram

Walter L. Ingram, MD

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.

Influenced by Dr. Ingram’s leadership and the quality of its services, the Grady Burn Center is verified by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma as an adult and pediatric burn center – considered the ‘Gold Standard’ for high-quality burn care.
