Making a Difference: Dr. Adewale Adeniran and Dr. Emmanuel Nwelue

SAN ANTONIO – Orthopedic surgeon Adewale Adeniran says Black History Month is not only celebrating the past.

Because Black history is happening right now.

Making a Difference: Dr. Adewale Adeniran and Dr. Emmanuel Nwelue

“I was and very many black surgeons are the first people to graduate from their training program,” says Dr. Adeniran. “I graduated in 2014 from my residency training program.”

The disparity is evident, numbers from the Association of American Medical colleges show only five percent of active physicians in America are Black.

Dr. Adeniran says that needs to change.

His colleague Dr. Emmanuel Nwelue agrees.

“In general Black people have been kind of wary of going to see doctors, whether it’s surgeons or primary care professionals,” says Dr. Nwelue. “I think when they see someone that looks similar to them sitting across from them in the room, it just makes them more comfortable.”

For these two, the work is about improving people’s lives.

They could have chosen any division in the medical field, but they chose orthopedics.

It’s one way they’re making a difference.

COVID-19 Updates – January 06, 2021

TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine is following the Department of State Health Services protocol for distributing the COVID-19 vaccine as it becomes available to us.

We have received one allocation of 100 doses at this time that will be used to vaccinate our health care providers and staff. When we receive additional allocations, we plan to fully vaccinate the remainder of our staff, then continue to help vaccinate our medical community (healthcare workers and first responders).
 
Once we have the medical community’s needs, we will then offer doses that are available to our patients according to the distribution protocol set by the State. We currently do not have an estimated date when this will occur, but we are looking forward to when we can open this up to our most vulnerable patient population. When this occurs, we will announce it via our website and social media accounts.
Please continue to visit our website at www.TSAOG.com as well as our Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn accounts for the most up-to-date information.
 
We appreciate your patience as we work as quickly as possible to help protect our entire community.
