Dr. Robert Warriner, III
Dr. Robert A. Warriner, III was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1950. He received degrees from Tulane University and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. He completed an internship in general surgery and residency in anesthesiology and completed a fellowship in anesthesiology and critical care medicine at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. He later served four years of active duty in the United States Air Force as the Director of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas and Chief of Anesthesia Services at USAF Hospital Luke in Glendale, Arizona.
For six years Dr. Warriner practiced anesthesia and critical care medicine at Conroe Regional Medical Center in Conroe, Texas. He eventually provided access to hyperbaric medicine for patients at the hospital. This led to an investigation of the concept of a wound care and hyperbaric medicine center, and in 1990, Dr. Warriner became the founding medical director of the Southeast Texas Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. As an expert in the field of wound care, Dr. Warriner spoke nationally and internationally on his experience as a wound care physician and enabled him to write medical policy, clinical practice guidelines, and to educate thousands of physicians and nurses on the complex needs of wound care patients.
In 2011, Barry University’s, Dr. Jeffrey Jensen along with his wife Celia, established the Dr. Robert Warriner, III Scholarship for Research in Neuropathy Prevention, to honor Dr. Jensen’s colleague, Dr. Warriner who was recognized among the nation’s foremost physicians and researchers in hyperbaric medicine, wound management, and continuous quality improvement in medical care. Dr. Warriner died on August 2, 2012.
