Colonel Alexander Stojadinovic, MD, FACS
Individual Letterman Award Winner, 2011
Colonel Alexander Stojadinovic, in a conversation with other doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center recognized the significant challenge that was faced in wound care of complex battle wounds. His answer was to create the Combat Wound Initiative Program (CWI). In partnership with civilian leaders in wound care and research COL Stojadinovic and his team of clinicians and researchers provide cutting edge care through targeted clinical and translational research that incorporates advanced technology and treatment, tissue banking and bioinformatics. With CWI, COL Stojadinovic is addressing a previously unmet need in combat casualty care with an integrated approach to wound healing. The leadership of COL Stojadinovic has enabled U.S. Army medicine to go beyond current medical science in helping our severely wounded troops lead a more manageable life.
