Dr. Edward Ellis
Dr. Edward Ellis, professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery, was inducted into the Royal College of Surgeons of England. The college, which is one of the world's leading surgical institutions, dates back to 1800.
"It is a great honor because there are only a handful of oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the United States who have been awarded this fellowship," Dr. Ellis said. "One of those individuals is Dr. Robert V. Walker, professor emeritus and former chairman of oral and maxillofacial surgery here at UT Southwestern."
Dr. Ellis said that after the ceremony several British surgeons said he was elected to the college in recognition of his academic pursuits and for advancing the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery. He is a member of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the International Association of Dental Research, and the International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
